Welcome to our Light The Night Walk Team Fundraising Page
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.
As you may know, on June 20th, 2010 I was diagnosed with multiple plasma cell leukemia. I had a stem cell transplant I’m honored to be here tonight to share my story with all of you. The same week I was diagnosed with Leukemia, I was in school and starting a new job, my son was turning 23 and my daughter was graduating high school. I missed all of it. Because of my experience I have made the commitment to support the LLS Light the Night Walk.
Your help will make a difference. Please consider supporting me by making a donation.
Take a look at some of the ways your contribution helps cancer patients:

- A donation of $50 makes possible a Family Support Group with a trained facilitator, where comfort can be found and experiences shared among patients and family members.
- A donation of $100 helps provide laboratory researchers with supplies and materials critical to carrying out their search for cures.
