Welcome to my Light The Night Walk Fundraising Page

This year Christina's Daisies is participating in our 5th Boston Light The Night walk. Many times anniversaries are happy times and celebratory in nature. This anniversary is one where we find ourselves hoping to end the need to participate sometime in our lifetime.

Christina was beautiful, smart, caring yet carefree. She was the typical college student. Not sure what she wanted to major in. Just enjoying her time at Gordon College. She had moved out of the dorms to live with several close friends and was excited about being able to enjoy her rented house in Gloucester near the beach. Everything seemed to have fallen into place for her and then her life was literally derailed by Leukemia.

The two years following her initial diagnosis were a roller coaster of emotions, health issues,bone marrow transplants, remission and reoccurrence and in the end Leukemia took her away from all of us. No one had the answers on how to save her from this horrific disease.

So why have we walked for 5 years and continue to walk in support of the The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Light The Night Walk? We do it so one other person who is afflicted by Leukemia will have the answers to save their life. So more and more research is done and more and more answers are found and more and more people are eventually healed. The research is being done today and more answers are discovered all the time. New medications have been funded by LLS. Survival rates are improving every year as evidenced by the increasing number of survivors we see participating in this walk each year. But none of this is free. It is very expensive and how can that research be funded?? By your financial support.

Walking in the Light The Night is a very moving experience and increases awareness about the purpose of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. We would love to have you join us on our team to help support the walk on October 8th, 2015 on the Boston Common.  Become a Christina's Daisy...

If you can't walk, can you make a donation to help fund the research and the many programs of LLS? Whatever you donate any amount is needed. It all keeps the research going! Lets hope on the next anniversary there is no need to walk.

Thank you for bringing us all closer to living in a world without blood cancers!
