Firefighter Stairclimb to Support the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

1 Comment

Portland Fire & Rescue firefighters will be competing in the Scott Firefighter Stairclimb on March 7th, 2010 to raise funds for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society

Scott Firefighter Stairclimb
The Scott Firefighter Stairclimb is a timed race up the stairs at the Columbia Center in downtown Seattle, Washington in full fire gear and Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA). There are 69 flights of stairs, 1311 steps, and 788 feet of vertical elevation.  Although it will be challenging, it pales in comparison to what blood cancer patients must go through. All proceeds will benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

Learn More About 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 $550 million for research specifically targeting blood cancers.

thought i would be leukemia free again after being diagnosed in 2015,i have tried everything possible means in life from

one doctor to another,one hospital to another,series of tests, different kinds of medication,i had already lost hope until

i melt Tessy Harvy from(London)who kindly told me about DR.SIMMON who do cure difference virus by the preparation of herbs

and roots.I searched about the DR online which leads me to difference testimonies about the great herbal DR. I so decided

to make up my mind and give him a try,i contacted his email that was given in the post and I followed him with all amount

of seriousness and i did all he instructed me.To my greatest surprise,the disease that seem incurable disappear within 20

days of using his remedy.I am writing this here in order to put you in the know that there is a cure for this's

time to stop believing in the medical doctors who do says to us there is no cure for Acute lymphocytic leukemia and many

more virus.I just want you to know that if you are going through any health challenge,contact this man and follow his

instruction diligently and have a disease free life.His email is ( living dog is far better
