The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) funds the research and development of therapies that save thousands of lives every day. Two examples are targeted therapies that seek out cancer cells and kill them, and the use of a patient's own immune system to kill cancer.

I have been personally touched by the progress that has been made in treating Leukemia and Lymphoma.  I am proud to say that two of our advisors are alive today because of the amazing drugs and therapies that organziations like LLS have helped make possible.  Thirteen years ago, a 35 year old financial advisor with Lantern was diagnosed with stage 4 non-hodgins lymphoma and is cancer free today!  Two years ago, a thirty year old Lantern advisor was diagnosed with leukemia and is being treated with Gleevac.  He has told me on several occassion how fortunate he is to have access to a drug like Gleevac.  If he were born 30 years ago his leukemia would have been untreatable.  We walk to honor these brave team members.

These are two wonderful success stories.  However, much work still needs to be done.  We, at Lantern, have lost two people to leukemia and lymphoma.  We walk to remember Howard Miller and Robert Gunther.
