We are climbing again this year in memory of my Dad. For so many reasons I continue to climb: because it made him happy to be there the first year we participated and so excited at the completely overwhelming response to our fundraising for the second year; because he had something rare that needs more research and treatment options; because he was always thinking of others and would want us to continue to help fight blood cancers; because we still had plans...because he should still be here.

Welcome To My Fundraising Page.

Please join me in supporting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) by making a donation to my fundraising goal. Thanks to your support, my efforts, will help fund the therapies and treatments and help save lives today.

Big Climb MPLS 
February 16, 2019
Capella Tower 

The Big Climb MPLS is an exhilarating, one-of-a-kind, stair-climbing event, providing an opportunity for participants to challenge themselves and climb a whole bunch of stairs.

53 or 105 flights of them.

I will take on the tallest vertical challenge in the Upper Midwest by raising money and conquering Capella Tower on February 16 to help the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society raise $225,000 for the mission.

Please make a donation to continue to help save lives and fund vital research. 

On behalf of blood cancer patients everywhere I thank you for your support! For more information about LLS, please visit


Love and miss you!!!
