Saving Lives... One Step at a Time
Welcome to my Hike for Discovery home page.
Hike For Discovery is The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's adventure fundraising program that works towards finding a cure in a special and exciting way.
One of the reasons I am hiking is for my Papa. Last May he was diagnosed with multiple types of cancer. It started with skin cancer, and then as more biopsies and surgeries took place, more dangerous and life threatening cancers were found throughout his body. He's undergone long, painful treatments of chemotherapy, many surgeries, and radiation, and as of last month- he’s cancer free. His attitude towards the cancers was that he could beat them. He did. And now I want to instill this same attitude and belief in others… because I am alive, and well, and capable, and because I love him.
While I'm training, I'm raising funds to help the Society cure leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma. More than 712,000 Americans are battling these blood cancers. Your support of my participation in Hike For Discovery will help bring them hope and support. I will be hiking Rocky Moutain National Park, Co, June 7-10, of this year and I am so excited!
Please join me in my excitement and make a donation, no- matter how large or small, to support my participation in Hike for Discovery and help advance the Society's mission. I hope you'll visit my web site often, so that you can see how my training and fundraising efforts are going. $4,000 is a lot of money as a whole, but I believe step by step- it can be reached, just like the cure for cancer. Be sure to check back frequently to see my progress. If you have any questions, go ahead and e-mail me at BrandiHFD@yahoo.com Thanks for your support and for hearing my story!
