For the past several years, I have taken part in the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Light the Night walk and will be doing so again at the beginning of October. Light The Night Walk is The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s nationwide evening Walk to build awareness of blood cancers and raise funds for cures. Walkers carry illuminated balloons-white for survivors and red for supporters-to celebrate and commemorate lives touched by cancer. My team, the Nite Lights, walk in honor of survivors we know and also those who have lost their battle. I personally walk on behalf of my mom’s best friend Rose, who is a survivor, and my friend Tracey’s nephew, Anthony, who lost his battle at just five years old. Many others on our team walk for friends and family members who have passed away. It is a very somber event, yet we know that by taking part, we are helping to raise money that can lead to a cure for these blood cancers.
I hate to use this as a platform to ask for donations…but frankly, I think it’s a good way to do it. If you are also on my email list, you might hear from me that way as well. If you would like to make a donation online, please visit my Light the Night website by clicking here. You can donate there with a debit or a credit card. If you would rather mail me your donation, please leave me a comment with your email address and I’ll send you my address. Please make checks out to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
Thank you for your help! No donation is too small. Every dollar raised goes to research to end these terrible diseases.
