Welcome to our 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.
We walk in honor of Mollie. Mollie has been fighting actue lymphoblastic leukemia since June 17, 2008! Please make a donation to support our participation in the Light The Night Walk and help save lives. For more about Mollie, check out her blog at:
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. These treatments have helped patients live better, longer lives. New targeted therapies that kill cancer cells without harming normal tissue are providing drugs and procedures that are improving quality of life.
- 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 $100 helps supply laboratory researchers with supplies and materials critical to carrying out their search for cures.
