I am doing the Grand Canyon hike for my mom, who was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in 2007. She has always been the rock and foundation of our family and it took her three years to tell us she was sick because she didn’t want us to worry. She has three kids and 10 grandkids and has always put her family first; it is an honor to be able to hike in her name.
I have seen firsthand how the drugs and research have helped my mom. I want to help raise money for the MMRF with this Grand Canyon hike and help them keep up their amazing work. I am doing this hike with my sister Bernadette Hess.
