John Blattner Hates Cancer and So Should You!

Thanks for coming to my team's page for the Light the Night Walk. If you want to walk with my family and I on October 17th in DC, please sign up for the walk. If you can't make the walk but want to help the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society with a donation, go ahead and donate through one of the team members' pages.

Welcome to my Light The Night Walk homepage.

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. These treatments have helped patients live better, longer lives. New targeted therapies that kill cancer cells without harming normal tissue are providing drugs and procedures that are improving quality of life.

  • 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. Be sure to check my Web site frequently to see my progress, and thanks for your support!

    "My son Hunter was only 3 years old when he got diagnose with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) on May 15th, 2015. He is a real Hero with all he has overcome. Now we are very excited to see the light at the end of all of this after 3 years of treatment and we wanted to find away to give back. "
