Anne Hess's Fundraising Page
Oct 24, 2012

In loving memory of Jared Hess (Jan 27 1978- Jan 25 2008): husband, father, son, brother, cousin, nephew, uncle, colleague, teammate, friend to so very many.

The Light the Night walk is a way that we gather as friends and family to remember, move forward and offer hope to other families stuggling with blood cancer.

Please join a group of family and friends on October 27nd, 2012 at Eakin's Oval at the Philadelphia Art Musuem as we walk to remember and honor Jared's life, his role in all of our lives and his bravery and grace throughout his struggle with leukemia. We walk in solidarity with all those whose lives have been touched by blood cancers. We raise funds so that many more people will have hope and a chance at survival. I genuinely hope that you will be able to walk with us and/or help me in meeting, even exceeding the fundraising goal.

Please help me raise $1,500 for LLS.

Light The Night Walk is The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's annual fundraising walk to pay tribute and bring hope to people battling cancer. Hundreds of thousands of participants raise funds for lifesaving research and patient services.

Please join Team Jared Hess's effort today by registering to walk or by making a donation. Your participation in the Light The Night Walk will help save lives. Be sure to check our team Web site frequently to see our progress, and thanks for your support!

For more information on Light the Night and the Leukemia & Lymphoma society, read below.

Here is the schedule for the afternoon/evening:

4:30 P.M. Check-In and Pre-Walk Festivities begin

5:15 P.M. Remembrance Ceremony

5:30 P.M. Head Shaving Ceremony

6:00 P.M. Opening Ceremonies

The walk is just one mile.


For more than 60 years, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) has been solely focused on people with blood cancers. Presently, we have more than $250 million committed to research across the United States and in ten other countries. Every dollar is provided by concerned donors. We invest in the best, outcome based science:

Anywhere, with no geographic or institutional boundaries

Without profit incentive

To meet unmet Medicare needs of people with blood cancers

And LLS funded advances are helping patients beyond those for whom they were originally developed, including people with solid tumors and auto-immune diseases. In the past decade, nearly 50% (19 put of 39) of the cancer drugs approved by the FDA were approved as treatments for blood cancer patients. Twelve are already approved for people beyond those for whom they were first developed. With your help, we are saving 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.
