Welcome to my Light The Night Walk homepage!

We are walking this year to honor my husband, Pat Nave, who lost his battle with Leukemia on February 14, 2011. Currently there isn't a Light The Night Walk organized for Billings Montana, or anywhere in the state. The closest organized walk is in Idaho. We will be gathering in Pat's honor at North Park on October 14, 2011, at 7pm, for a two mile walk. We hope one day soon the Leukemia and Lymphoma society will bring a walk to our area. Please help us raise awareness, and funds for this cause. Our hope is, if we raise enough funds, we can show the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society that Billings is a prime location to hold a walk, and that we (as a community) would raise a ton of money for the cause! Please visit our facebook page to show your support as well!

Light The Night Walk is The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's annual fundraising walk to pay tribute and bring hope to people battling cancer. Hundreds of thousands of participants raise funds for lifesaving research and patient services.

For more than 60 years, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) has been solely focused on people with blood cancers. Presently, we have more than $250 million committed to research across the United States and in ten other countries. Every dollar is provided by concerned donors. We invest in the best, outcome based science:

  • Anywhere, with no geographic or institutional boundaries
  • Without profit incentive
  • To meet unmet Medicare needs of people with blood cancers

And LLS funded advances are helping patients beyond those for whom they were originally developed, including people with solid tumors and auto-immune diseases. In the past decade, nearly 50% (19 out of 39) of the cancer drugs approved by the FDA were approved as treatments for blood cancer patients. Twelve are already approved for people beyond those for whom they were first developed. With your help, we are saving 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. Be sure to check my Web site frequently to see my progress, and thanks for your support!

****Just to make things clear, we are organizing a walk HERE (IN BILLINGS MT) on October 14, 2011. I can't change the details given on the team page, so please just disregard them. We are technically a team registered for Boise, ID (since we have no organized walk here in Bilings) so that is why all that information is there. Thanks!!
