2021's Big Climb is different again this year, but one thing that remains the same is the need for funding to battle Blood Cancers.
Hodgkin's Lymphoma took the life of my biological father when I was 4 years old. Today, it is a curable cancer. Since his death in 1959, many friends and family members have also been touched by blood cancers. I climb to honor each of them. I climb to help raise funds to support the mission of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society so that they can continue to fund research and offer patient support.
I will be participating (virtually) in Big Climb Seattle 2021 on May 15th. Our efforts will help make a big difference in the fight against blood cancers.
What is the Big Climb?
The Big Climb is typically a stair climb 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 to take on this event virtually this year, 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!
