My wife and I will be walking up 40 flights of stairs as part of an awareness campaign about exercise in the workplace. One of the local news stations caught wind that my wife was diagnosed with stage iv lung cancer. They interviewed us today. They will do a story tonight and tomorrow. Ill post the link to the interview when I get it.

wish us luck... my wife will probably do fine, but I may need her assistance.

    we made it
    We made it up the 40 stories. My wife has a cold, and her chemo has kept her stamina down so it took her 20 minutes... that about 5 minutes slower that when she did it three years ago.... I should have the interview this week.

    Your wife is an inspiration. 40 stories in 20 minutes is nothing to sneeze at (no cold reference there!) Congratulations on this journey!

    Four flights would be nice for me !!!!

    Actually, afer just getting over my two month wrath of what docs called strepoccus pneumonia with empyhema in right lung, complicated by my LC and COPD, I finally could probably do the 40 flights.

    Good Luck!!!!
