Welcome to the Ditzler Family's Light The Night Walk homepage.
Jul 19, 2011


Nearly 1 million people in the US are battling or in remission from one of the blood cancers — leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma, and myelodysplastic syndromes.


Given that number, it is more than likely you know someone personally who has been affected — a family member, a friend, a neighbor, a co-worker. Perhaps you've been inspired by Alex of Alex's Lemonade Stand or Kim Hill, who was the catalyst for the first Ronald McDonald House. You certainly recognize Michael C. Hall, star of TV's Dexter, who is national chair of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), following successful treatment for Hodgkin lymphoma.


In my own small circle, a good friend lost his wife last fall following a hard-fought battle with leukemia. The grandmother of one of my daughter's soccer teammates was recently diagnosed. Hitting closer to home, the adult son of one of my cousins is a lymphoma survivor. And my youngest son is a healthy soon-to-be teenager following successful leukemia treatment that began when he was one.


As a member of the Executive Committee of the Eastern PA Chapter of LLS, I have been moved by stories from fellow volunteers who have lost loved ones, are supporting family members and co-workers, or are in treatment themselves.


What can be done? A lot over recent decades thanks to public support of LLS sponsored research, patient services, and education and advocacy efforts. The major annual fundraising engine behind those advances is the Light the Night walk.


I encourage you to join us this October, either by walking with us or by donating online right here to my Light the Night page. Together, we can make a difference toward erradication of all the blood cancers.


Thanks for your support,


Dan Ditzler and family
