Welcome to My Personal Page
WHY DO WE CLIMB? TO CURE BLOOD CANCER.
Last year all of you in my village helped me raise over $7,000 for LLS. Your support meant SO MUCH to my family. We lost Dad Del Hodgins in Dec. of 2018 to Lymphoma. He was my inspiration to jump on "Larissa's Crew"-which is one of the top fundraising teams in the Seattle Big Climb.
Pictured here with me is my Mother-in-Law, Mary Carlson. She is currently winning her battle with Leukemia. LLS HAS COVERED THE COST OF HER MEDS EVERY MONTH FOR THE PAST 2 YEARS.
LLS offers financial support to blood cancer patients, their caregivers and families.
It is VERY SCARY how many of us are being touched by cancer. Researchers are making tremendous progress with treatments, which brings us all HOPE...SOMETHING WE ALL NEED.
Thank you for being the kind of people that make the world a better place.
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!
