Big Climb 2023


Hello! Every year when I start updating this website, It hits me hard as  another year has passed without my precious. on March 27th he will/would have been 29 years old, probably married and may be had kids but sadly.... It has been 18 years and every day reminds me of his time in hospital and where we were desperately looking  for a miracle drug to beat this beast. In the end I promised to my son that I will work hard to raise awareness and funds to help others and in research.

This year the climb is going to be on Sunday, March 26, 2023. I am making a commitment to climb 1’311 steps, more importantly even than my physical commitment to the program is my commitment to raise funds for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society in its effort to battle Leukemia and related cancers. These diseases strike over 107,000 Americans each year and acute leukemia is the number one cause of death of children under the age of 15.  One of the greatest contributions of the Society is toward research. Great progress has been made in the treatment of this disease, and continued funding for this research is essential.  We need your support so please make a donation by clicking on the Donate button above. Please forward this email to your friends and family.

Our team “Bendy Climbers” in raising funds for Leukemia and Lymphoma society? Here it is a chance to embody a glimmer of hope for those who are battling blood cancers and to remember those who have lost their battle. Your donation is tax-deductible and NO DONATION IS TOO SMALL.  

Thanks for your support!

What is the Big Climb?

The Big Climb is 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, it pales in comparison to what blood cancer patients go through.  All proceeds benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. The video below captures the true spirit of the Big Climb.

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.
