Welcome to Kelsey O'Neill's Light The Night Walk Fundraising Page

26 years old. The time in a young person's life where they should be living every moment to the fullest. Exploring the world, figuring out their next career move, dancing on tables, laughing with friends, and celebrating a future full of possibilities. It shouldn’t be the year you hear the words “You have cancer”. But it was for StephenieStephenie and I have been friends for more than a decade. She has always been bright and bubbly and her distinctive laugh can be heard in any crowd. She has always been the one to lift your spirits, comfort you when you in your time of need and give uninhibitedly to others.

I was devastated the day she told me she had been diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. How can one of my best friends, with such a bright future ahead, have to put all those plans on hold to fight the battle for her life? How is that fair? A cancer diagnosis for anyone is the worst news they can hear, but I never expected it to hit me so close to home and at such a young age.

It’s impossible to know what to do or say to someone you love when they hear that they have cancer. Stephenie is one of the strongest, most loving, most courageous people I have ever had the pleasure of having in my life. Every day she fights a battle and even when she feels like crap from rounds and rounds of chemotherapy, she can still make me laugh.

I’m walking for Stephenie Lai. The most beautiful person I know.

Please consider donating to our team so that life-saving research can continue and that one day someone else’s 26 year old won’t have to hear the words “You have cancer”.

 

Thank you for bringing us all closer to living in a world without blood cancers!
