Welcome to My Personal Page
Hello! I will be participating in Big Climb Seattle on Sunday, March 22nd. Our entire family, my sons' girlfriends and other family friends will be climbing with Team Craig's Legs. I have asked two people to be honored patients of Team Craig's Legs. The first is Julia Person, the daughter of my lifelong friend, Sue Person. The second is Cami Keyes, a friend from Youth Eastside Services (YES). Julia is currently in remission from Hodgkin Lymphoma and Cami is in remission from non-Hodgkin Lymphoma. You can read more about Cami below*. Please consider supporting me with a donation by clicking the 'donate now' button above this text. Our efforts will help make a big difference in the fight against blood cancers.
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.
*My name is Cami and I have spent the last 10 years of my life dealing with the realities of lymphoma. It started as a lump on my neck and finished five years later with hope, thanks to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS). You see, I was a self-employed and a newly single parent when I was diagnosed. Cost was initially as concerning as the side effects, but LLS helped—not only with leading-edge research to cure me, but with tangible financial help to pay for insurance, medications and medical co-pays. This became crucial as I experienced four recurrences and went through years of treatment, including two stem cell transplants. And thanks to LLS I am alive and financially stable. I am honored to be here sharing my story so others can see how important it is to give, to climb, to participate in supporting LLS. Please share all or part of my story in your fundraising efforts. Thank you!
THANK YOU for your time and I hope that you will consider donating to this cause!
