Climb. Conquer. Cure.
March 27th, 2022
Dear Family, Friends, Neighbors, Co-workers, Customers, and all who care about helping those with blood cancers,
I'm excited that Big Climb will be in person in 2022! This will be my seventh Big Climb since losing my dear son Tim to a rare non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Tim fought this disease valiantly from the time he learned of his blood cancer in August, 2014, until he passed in December, 2014. He was just 35 years old and left a wife and three young children.
Big Climb has been a positive outlet for me because it affords a way to transform my tragedy into helping others with similar illnesses, and, at the same time, lifting the spirits of this grieving mother.
With your generous support I hope to reach my ambitious goal of raising $10,000.
Would you please add your donation to my page? Please use the "Donate Now" tab and know how much I appreciate your help.
I'll be thinking of you as I climb those 69 floors of the Columbia Center Tower!
Climbing for Tim,
What is the Big Climb?
The Big Climb is a stairclimb up the Columbia Center - the tallest skyscraper in downtown Seattle. There are 69 floors of stairs, 1311 steps, and 788 feet of vertical elevation. Although it will be challenging, it pales in comparison to what blood cancer patients go through. All proceeds benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
Who is The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society?
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is the world's largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research, education and patient services. The mission of LLS is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.
Every day, more than 347 LLS sponsored researchers come closer to the goal of finding a cure for leukemia and related blood cancers. Locally, LLS funds 10 researchers at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and University of Washington Medical Center. Your support and commitment to the mission of LLS enables us to continue this important work of saving lives and aids us in our ability to reach patients in our community.
Thank you for your time and I hope that you will consider donating to this cause!
