Dear Friend!

I recently accepted the challenge to raise funds to support Fred Hutch’s Climb to Fight Cancer.

Each of the four decades of my life has been altered in some way by cancer. These interactions included the closely concurrent deaths of a close aunt and uncle in my early years.... the sudden and unexpected loss of a college friend and baseball teammate... the excoriatingly slow deterioration and passing of a young, athletic, and vibrant family friend..... and finally my own mother's recent battle and triumph.

I found that without fail, across each story, within each patient, there existed a consistent and often unifying, interstitial sense of bravery, camaraderie, hope, love, and most of all gratitude. There was no and I mean NO question of why me, why now, why anything. It was without fail, a smile, a knowing nod, a gracious thank you for a coffee, and a curiosity for "what's next".

I'll take time to profile as many of the folks that I've been lucky enough to know over the years, and share as I can, their stories and profiles in courage and gratitude.

I will be hiking to raise money for the Fred Hutch team, as each day new discoveries are made that could keep the people you love, next to you for longer, doing the things they love.

The theme of my climb will be Courage and Gratitude and I will share as much as I can, stories of Courage and Gratitude, from those who have touched my life along the way. My goal is to raise $50,000 for Fred Hutch and you can help by donating to my climb, which will accelerate the quest for cures.


Fred Hutch has made some of the world’s most important medical advances — from developing bone marrow transplantation as a cure for leukemia, to pioneering powerful therapies that harness the immune system to fight cancer, to leading national and international initiatives that enable earlier cancer diagnoses and more effective treatments. This leading-edge research depends on private contributions that fuel novel studies, which have the power to make a profound difference.


Please click the “Donate” button and give to the Climb to Fight Cancer. Any amount you can give makes a difference to people and families facing deadly diseases. Your gift is 100 percent tax deductible and will fund extraordinary research, lifesaving discoveries, and cures. Thank you for your support!
