Kasey's Story
Aug 14, 2010 by Jennifer Lake

Kasey Griffiths is a 10 yr old little girl that is full of energy & spirit. She is starting 5th grade at South Mountain Elementary School in Dillsburg, PA this year. She has twin 14 yr old brothers, Kaleb & Kato. She has 3 little dogs that she adores and is a real animal lover. She wanted to be an M.D., but now has decided be a Veterinarian some day & be involved in animal rescue. She has a very pleasant personality & takes life in stride. She loves math, reading, music, dance, soccer, tennis, biking, creating, TV, playing with friends & just being a normal kid. She loves to please and succeed.

Kasey has been ill off & on since mid February and recently been diagnosed with high risk A.L.L Leukemia. Thankfully, there have been many achievements in the medical field, making this type of Leukemia very treatable. It is a very long treatment process though, and Kasey knows she has been faced with the fight of her life. She is prepared to take on this challenge placed on her from day one. She is visually impaired & has never let that get in the way of her success, nor will this interruption in her life. She has already overcome some serious complications of the chemotherapy in such a short period of time and has continued to keep on smiling.

One day she was playing in that giant 5 feet of snow goofing off having the best family fun ever & the next day our lives changed forever. Our little athletic, smart, energetic girl had come face to face with a reality no child should have to stare in the eyes. Yet, this child has taken it to the utmost unusual level & is making it a positive challenge instead. She is the exception to all rules. Kasey loves life, people & has a great future planned ahead of her already. She always finds ways to use every downfall to her advantage & turn it into a positive. She has kept her spirits up even the night she was told she had cancer. She is a very intelligent young girl & fully knew the extent of danger she was facing. The first words out of her mouth when I told her were, "Well, Mama, you always taught me to look on the bright side of things." She immediately pumped herself up to realized this was a gift from God of some sort. She feels she will be guided to the answer as to why she has had to face up to such a hard challenge. While in the hospital she came up with her new motto, 'NEVER GIVE UP' when we were doing scrap booking. Her attitude has been more than admirable & inspiring for a young girl her age. She is a very motivated & happy child that will win this battle and go on to help many others with all she has learned from it. She never ceases to amaze all the doctors, family & friends with her curiosity with all the medical procedures & education she is getting from all of this. She is very interested in the entire challenge she has been faced with. Kasey & her entire family are very humbled as to all the support, love and prayers they have gotten from the entire community and wish to express their sincere gratitude to all pulling for Kasey & ask the prayers don't stop until she is cured! She will NEVER GIVE UP!

Welcome to my Light The Night Walk homepage.

Light The Night Walk is The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's evening walk and fundraising event. It is the nation's night to pay tribute and bring hope to thousands of people battling blood cancers and to commemorate loved ones lost.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) funds lifesaving research that has contributed to major advances in the treatment of blood cancers and treatments for other types of cancer, such as chemotherapy and stem cell transplants. New targeted therapies that kill cancer cells without harming normal tissue are providing drugs and procedures that are improving quality of life.

In fact, in 2009 alone, LLS researchers were conducting more than 90 clinical trials, a critical step in the development of new treatments and cures that will help patients live better, longer lives.

  • A donation of $25 provides patients and their loved ones with FREE booklets that contain up-to-date information on their disease and help them make informed decisions about their treatment options.
  • A donation of $50 makes possible a Family Support group with a trained facilitator where comfort can be found and experiences can be shared among patients and family members.
  • A donation of $100 helps supply laboratory researchers with supplies and materials critical to carrying out their search for cures.
  • A donation of $1,000 makes possible one- on-one conversations with health care specialists who provide patients with information about their disease, treatment options, and helps prepare them with questions for their health care team.

Please make a donation to support my participation in the Light The Night Walk and help save lives. Be sure to check my Web site frequently to see my progress, and thanks for your support!
