Fighting Cancer, One Step At A Time
Hello Cancer Fighters!
Welcome to my donation page! My name is Luc Lauzon. I hope that you will join me in the Fight against Cancer, a disease that robs adults and children alike from their health, hopes, dreams – and, for far too many – their lives. For the past year, I’ve been trying to think of a way to raise money to help in this important fight and finally decided to use my personal passion for hiking to raise funds to help our brightest researchers make groundbreaking discoveries, provide cancer patients with much-needed support services, and ensure that other life-changing work is possible.
Between Canada and the United States, approximately 1.9 million new cancer cases are expected to be diagnosed this year, and about 689,640 Americans and Canadians will most likely lose their lives to this disease. This grim statistic was just as horrific last year, and on August 16, 2017, my mom, Carole Cusson, was taken from us by lung cancer.
There aren't enough words to describe what she meant to me and my family, but everything I am today, I owe to her. Her indomitable, compassionate, loving, and generous presence was the guiding light of my life, and because of that, I am dedicating this fundraiser to her.
I’m well-prepared to take on this fight. During the past 10 years, I've climbed some of the world's most challenging mountains to achieve my goal to climb the highest mountain on every continent, the Seven Summits.
My next challenge, and one of my greatest yet, will be to hike the 4,265 KM (2,650mi) Pacific Crest Trail over the next five months, starting at the Canada/US border at Manning Park, British Columbia, crossing the states of Washington, Oregon, and California, and finally ending at the US/Mexico border. I will be hiking through 25 national forests, 7 national parks, and nearly 1,130 KM (700 miles) of South Californian desert.
This time, I'm doing it to fight cancer!!
Your donations will not only help fuel my motivation to keep pushing on but will also honour my mom’s memory and support the fight against this ruthless disease so that one day, none of us will have to endure a loss like this again.
Please donate today and help put an end to cancer! Any size donation will be deeply appreciated, but to put your donation into the context of my trek, you may want to choose a kilometer-based donation. For example, consider the following:
- $0.01 per KM = $42.65
- $0.05 per KM = $213.25
- $0.10 per KM = $426.50
- $0.25 per KM = $1066.25
- $0.50 per KM = $2132.50
- $1.00 per KM = $4265.00
