Several people in my life have fought cancer, and unfortunately, none have won. My grandmother passed away from leukemia two weekends ago. A friend of mine from college also died from leukemia. My favorite teacher in high school died from colon cancer. The lives of these people are what I will be celebrating when I rappel down a New York City skyscraper to raise money for the American Cancer Society. Aside from the pure thrill of going over the edge of a building, I get to raise money to support their work. If you would like to join me or support me, visit my fundraising page. I am dedicating this to my grandmother to honor her life and her love and her fight.
