I need your help. Here's the plan: I'll hike real far and you dig deep in your generous pockets and donate to beat Leukemia, Lymphoma and Myeloma.
Starting ~ June 1, 2018 I plan to thru-hike the Appalachian Trail (i.e., hike all 2,185 miles in a couple big bites) to raise money to support fight, leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma. My six month journey will take me through 14 states from Georgia to Maine. I will ascend the equivalent of 6 ascents of Mt. Everest and take 5 million steps carrying everything I need on my back.
Can you help me raise $50,000 to find a cure and support blood cancer survivors?
:: Every 3 minutes in the U.S. one person is diagnosed with leukemia, lymphoma or myeloma.
:: That's 1 in 10 new cancer diagnoses.
:: Over a million people are fighting blood cancers today.
Survival rates for blood cancers have improved greatly since I was born and I want them to improve much, much more before I die. Donations to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) are the best way I know to accomplish that goal. LLS also supports those fighting lymphoma, leukemia and myeloma today.
So GIVE. And GIVE BIG if you can. I'll be thinking of you every step of the way!!
