The climb this year is a bit more personal for me. My friend has a son the same age as my own who has been diagnosed with leukemia. He has been coined with the nickname Iron Man Sam because of his medication port, and his bravery and amazing attitude during the treatments. I cannot imagine how difficult it would be as a parent to watch your young child receive treatments to cure this disease. Often times there are severe side effects that would break your heart to witness. I climb for them. I climb to ease their burden. Please help me by donating to this cause.
Below are details about the climb and how your donations help. All expenses for my trip are paid for personally. Your donations go directly to benefit those suffering from blood cancers:

Climb. Conquer. Cure.
Hello! I will be participating in the LLS Firefighter Stairclimb in support of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). Before I ascend the Columbia Center in downtown Seattle, WA, I will be raising funds throughout the season in the name of funding and finding a cure. Please consider making a donation to not only help me achieve my personal fundraising goal, but to benefit patients and their families everywhere.
What is the LLS Firefighter Stairclimb?
The LLS Firefighter Stairclimb is the world's largest on-air stair climb competition, and annual fundraiser held at the tallest building in town, the Columbia Center. All 2,000 participants are career, volunteer, or retired firefighters who will climb up the second tallest skyscraper west of the Mississippi in full turnout gear, weighing over 60 pounds, while on-air. Throughout this grueling course, we all remember that every step forward is representative of moving closer to a cure. Although this is an extreme test of physical endurance, it pales in comparison to what blood cancer patients endure. All proceeds raised directly benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and since its inception in 1991, this event has raised over $20 million thus far.
Thank you for your time, consideration, and sincere generosity in this cause worth climbing for.
