Welcome To Our Big D Climb Team Fundraising Page.
For those of you that know my dad, you know that he and stairs have a lot in common....always up to something! Pancho is usually always the life of the party, but on January 2012, we received news that he was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. Although he endured 8 rounds of chemo, several months in the hospital, numerous biopsies, pokes, etc., he persevered and is now officially four years cancer-free. But the fight does not stop there. He is a fighter and will continue to fight this everyday. He fights alongside others who have lost their battles to blood cancers and all cancers alike and who continue to fight cancer every single day. Please join me on Saturday, January 28, 2017 for the 9th annual Big D Climb. We climb in honor of my father and all other survivors, but we especially cimb in memory of dear friends who lost their battles. We climb alongside Carrie & Julie, in honor of their father, Darrell Westbrook. We also climb alongside Ricky and Lauren Menchaca, Ricky's mother, Leticia Menchaca, lost her cancer battle last year. Together, our efforts, will help make a difference in the fight against blood cancers.
What is the Big D Climb?
The Big D Climb is a stair climb up 70 stories of Bank of America Plaza in Downtown Dallas. 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. Since its founding in 1949, LLS has invested more than $600 million for research specifically targeting blood cancers.
All donations are greatly appreciated and are tax deductible. They'll not only support LLS research but patient services, advocacy, public and professional education, and community services as well.
On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere I thank you for your support!
