Making a Difference for Jeremy

Posted: February 25, 2012 in Climber Profile, Stairclimb, Teams

Meet Scarlett Chen, Marina Madden and the rest of Team J.C.!

The J.C. in Team J.C. stands for Jeremy Chen, the inspiration behind the team. Comprised of his wife, Scarlett, close friends, colleagues and family, the team is back to climb in Jeremy’s name — and to help make a difference in the lives of others affected by life-threatening and life-altering lung disease.

Jeremy had lung cancer. He was diagnosed in late 2010 and passed away not long after our Stairclimb event in February 2011. He never smoked a day in his life – nor did any of his family or close friends. Jeremy is one of the 10-15 percent of lung cancer patients for whom the cause is a mystery.

This year Team J.C. is even bigger as more of his family and friends are taking part in his memory. Last year they were our top fundraising team — and it’s looking like they’ll be holding onto the title in 2012.
