Welcome to My Light The Night Walk Fundraising Page

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. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Light The Night Walk helps fund those treatments for patients like Joseph, a leukemia survivor.

 

 

At just 16 years old, my daughters classmate Anthony Harrison, was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL); T-cell leukemia with lymphoma blasts in the chest. LLS was there with Anthony and his family from the very beginning with friendship, support and critical treatment information, through chemo, aches and pains, Anthony went through a few years of treatment and subsequently relapsed, which led him to Seattle for a bone marrow transplant with SCCA, Fred Hutchinson and Seattle Children's Hospital. Shortly after the bone marrow transplant he relapsed again and was told it was too aggressive to treat and had a terminal diagnosis of six months. Although the news was hard he kept his head up, surrounded himself with good vibes and even changed his mental state to a more positive mindset. By doing so and being healthier 1 1/2 years after having a terminal diagnosis that he is cancer free and has remained cancer free since!

 

Anthony's is just one of the thousands of lives saved because of the LLS work supported by people like you.

USE THE FORCE WITHIN YOU TO HELP CHANGE THE OUTCOME FOR SOMEONE ELSE!
