Welcome to my Light The Night Walk homepage.

As many of you know, my husband Dale was diagnosed with Leukemia (AML) in 1999 and subsequently died from the disease in 2001. It was a very difficult time for Dale and our family while he struggled with this devastating illness. Dale was a very special person and he touched so many people's lives. When he was diagnosed with leukemia, his biggest fear was leaving me and our children, Jennifer and David. Dale fought this battle with everything he had and never once gave up hope. He was one of the bravest persons I have ever known.

Even 9 years after his passing, I still cry whenever I hear the words leukemia or lymphoma. But despite my tears, many children and adults continue to suffer and die from these diseases. This year, in memory of Dale, I am proud to be participating in the Light the Night Walk to help in the fight for finding a cure for blood cancers. To accomplsih our goal, I am asking for your help.

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.

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. New targeted therapies that kill cancer cells without harming normal tissue are providing drugs and procedures that are improving quality of life.

In fact, in 2009 alone, LLS researchers were conducting more than 90 clinical trials, a critical step in the development of new treatments and cures that will help patients live better, longer lives.

  • 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 $50 makes possible a Family Support group with a trained facilitator where comfort can be found and experiences can be shared among patients and family members.
  • A donation of $100 helps supply laboratory researchers with supplies and materials critical to carrying out their search for cures.
  • A donation of $1,000 makes possible one- on-one conversations with health care specialists who provide patients with information about their disease, treatment options, and helps prepare them with questions for their health care team.

Please make a donation to support my participation in the Light The Night Walk and help save lives. No amount is too small as every dollar makes a difference. I am sending a heartfelt thank you for support. Be sure to check my Web site frequently to see my progress.

With love,
