Welcome to our Team Torsie Light The Night Walk Fundraising Page!
The amount of support Team Torsie has received is awe-inspiring and humbling. It is a true testament to Torsie and to the breadth of her positive impact on others. She is truly one of a kind, and we are so proud to be able to call her our friend. For those of you who may not know her story, here is a little about the amazing Torsie Haugli and her journey:
On the morning of her college graduation, Torsie was taken to the ER in Lexington, KY for severe pain and a high fever. She was then transferred to the Cleveland Clinic, where she has remained, and was diagnosed with Anaplastic Large T-Cell Lymphoma ALK Positive with Leukemic involvement. She underwent chemotherapy and was responding well enough to have her bone marrow transplant. Just days before the transplant, doctors discovered a brain tumor. She continued chemotherapy until the tumor stopped responding to treatment, and has since begun radiation.
Torsie has been positive and optimistic throughout the entire proces. She has handled every obstacle with grace and has shown strength, bravery, and courage beyond compare. With a smile on her face, she has repeatedly beaten the odds and continues to fight just as hard each and every day. Anyone who knows Torsie personally has not only been deeply impacted by her, but knows how many other lives she has impacted along the way in her short 22 years of life. So, for as much as she has done for us, extending our support is the least that we can do for such an amazing and inspirational young woman. Our support will not only benefit her, but will extend beyond her and help families everywhere to find a cure.
When The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Light The Night Walk funds treatments that save lives, it's all due to people like you. Without your efforts LLS could not provide these lifesaving treatments. LLS really is making cures happen with your help.
Friends, families and co-workers form fundraising teams and millions of consumers help by donating at retail outlets. These efforts culminate in inspirational, memorable evening walks in over two hundred communities each fall across North America.
Please join our team's effort today by registering to walk or by making a donation. Your participation in the Light The Night Walk will save lives today. Be sure to check our team Web site frequently to see our progress, and thanks for your support!
