A little over a year ago my father was diagnosed with lung cancer. While he still battles the disease today, he is struggling more and more to keep healthy after a bout with pneumonia.
During these harder times I decided to reach out to my friends and share what my family was going through, since up to this point I really hadn't. Shortly after I found out about the Stair Climb, and these things are right up my alley. After asking my brother to join, we ended up raising more than I could have imagined.
We had absolutely no idea that all out of friends had raised money in our name or participated in the event. I am still completely blown away by it. I will never forget this day and have to thank everyone involved endlessly. This cause means so much to my family.
