In 2008 I was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma. In 2009 I had my first round of RVD and harvested my cells - and lost my hair - for the first time! Last year I scheduled my transplant and knew I was going to lose my hair - AGAIN. This time I was prepared.
Promoting Global Hair Loss raised over $60,000.00 losing hair all over the world: Hong Kong, Zurich, Middlebury, Boston, Baltimore, Dallas, NYC and a few other places! This year I had to think - what was I going to do? Three years ago I would have called anyone actually 'racing' the Empire State Building crazy. This year, I'm doing it, I'm going vertical - why? Because I can!
@1=1576 - get it? At one year, i'm doing 1,576 steps! (clever, eh?)
On Race day, exactly one year ago, I was at Mt Sinai Day4 after transplant. On my one year anniversary I'm going to run up one thousand five hundred seventy six steps (sounds bigger than 1,576) to the top of the Empire State Building. I'm going to try and have friends from each region of the world join me on my team - continuing to Promote Global Hair Loss. You're bald because you're kicking cancer's @ss! Let's make a fashion statement out of it!
Help me fight this incurable disease. I'm doing very well after one year but I have friends who are either back on chemo or already through another transplant. I'm doing it for me, I'm doing it for them, I'm doing it for everyone out there with this miserable disease!
Please pass this along to all your friends and follow me everywhere!
