Hello Everyone! What a crazy year it has been! We have so much to be thankful for, and especially for the precious life of our little Dylan. He has been cancer free for a year!! He is a little miracle and the light of our lives! We want every family that goes through this horrible journey to get their happy ending. Please join us in supporting the Leukemia nad Lymphoma Society as we help to find a cure for blood diseases. We are walking this year at the Light the Night Walk. It is on Saturday, Nov 6th at Saguaro Ranch Park. We would love for you to join us! If you cannot join us for the walk, please consider donating or helping to raise funds for research. No amount is too small. Last year's walk gave us hope by seeing survivors and being surrounded by our supporters....this year is going to be even better! Thank you for being a part of our journey!
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!
Love, The Praskins
