Welcome to Candy Wirt's Personal Page
Hi! On March 22, 2020, I will be participating in Big Climb Seattle as a member of Team Lesie Cakes. Our efforts will help make a big difference in the fight against blood cancers. Please consider helping me make my goal?
Lesie Cakes? Who’s that?, you’re asking yourself... well, she’s an adorable little girl who is struggling, with all her might, with the support of her family and friends who have rallied around her, along with teams of doctors, nurses, and many others in the medical community to save her from an aggressive form of childhood leukemia. So far, she’s surviving and the doctors feel she will soon go into remission in the spring of 2020. Lesie Cakes is one blessed little girl...but for so many others, the outcome might not be so positive. I’m unabashedly asking for you to consider donating anything you feel you can spare for this worthy effort.
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!
