Peaks and Valleys, a Hike of Hope

John has currently raised more than $76,000 toward lung cancer research since starting his journey.

Purchase your copy of John's book today! Online purchases available at http://johnbcasterline.com/

All profits for the first 1000 books sold will go to the American Lung Association. 50% will be donated for books sold after the first 1000.

This is a remarkable story of a stage IV lung cancer survivor, who chose to fight his demons by hiking the Pacific Crest Trail, a 2,656 mile journey from Mexico to Canada making way through California, Oregon and Washington. This true story takes you on an exciting journey stirring fears and emotions mixed with the author's wisdom, humor and the reach for hope. Peaks and Valleys A Hike of Hope is a must read for anyone affected by cancer.

Join me on my journey

The Story of John Casterline
On July 31st, 2006, I retired for the 2nd time and one week later was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. In Nov of 2010 I was diagnosed with prostate cancer and had my prostate removed. In Dec of 2010 I was diagnosed with throat cancer and surgery removed 95% of the tumor and radiation was used to complete the therapy.

Since 2011, I have hiked 2308 miles of the 2650 mile Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) in an effort to raise awareness about lung cancer, dollars for research, and provide hope to others. For those not familiar with the PCT, it begins at the Mexican border near San Diego and ends at the Canadian border above Seattle.

So, join me on this adventure. I am dedicating this trek to all those who preceded me in the battle to conquer lung cancer. Please, make a contribution for the American Lung Association and support my hike.

Why Fund Raise?
John came to the American Lung Association in August of 2010 asking how we can work together to raise awareness around lung cancer and raise vital funds for research while incorporating his love of the great outdoors and backpacking. Since the start of his campaign, he has raised over $75,000 which has been designated for the American Lung Association's Central Florida programs for lung disease. His goal is to raise $100,000.
