Welcome to the COMPAREX USA 2017 Big D Climbing Page.
We are excited to once again make our journey up 70 stories to the summit of the Bank of America Tower in downtown Dallas. We have two survivors of Hodgkin's Lymphoma on the team this year, John Havlick and Cameron Holloway who are both returning climbers.
“Giving back is one of the most important things our team can do, and we’re proud to participate in the Big D Climb and support the LLS. When I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma as a child, I had less than a 1 in 3 chance of surviving. Thanks to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, the thousands of people living with blood cancers today have a better chance of survival. The Big D Climb is a key fundraiser providing the families of North Texas with patient support, life-saving research and education,” says John Havlick.
Please join us as we fight Leukemia, Lymphoma and Blood Cancers everywhere on January 28, 2017. We have an aggressive team goal and need your support. Together, we can end this disease and help save lives around the world. For more information the climb and mission of the LLS, please read below.

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!
