Christine M Barrett

I am doing the stair climb in honor of my mother-in-law, Chris.  She was diagnosed with Lung Cancer back in March of 2009.  She fought for 18 months, until she passed away August 29th 2010.  She was the type of woman who would light up a room with her smile and was constantly putting everyone before her. During her battle with cancer, after every round of chemo failed, her only wish was...maybe because it didn't work on me, they'll have some research to have it help someone else.  This is how she lived her life.  She was caring and kind and will never be forgotten.  Doing this climb will help raise the awareness she would want about lung cancer, and lung disease. She would want the research to save someone's life.  I am climbing in her memory for all that she has done for others while on this earth and for what I know she is doing up in heaven. She is my inspiration.
