Jillian's Dream, a once-in-a-lifetime rappelling event, was created in memory of Jillian Miller, who lost her valiant battle against Stage IV lung cancer at the young age of 28. Jillian believed in “paying it forward”, therefore she participated in a clinical trial, if not to prolong her survival, but to eventually help someone who would receive the same diagnosis. Jillian’s Dream will be a celebration of Jillian’s life, bringing together those passionate about fighting lung cancer and providing critical funding for research to find a cure.

Participants are invited to raise funds for this event in exchange for the once-in-a-lifetime experience of rappelling over the edge of the 12-story Island Center building in Tampa, FL.
