Welcome to my Light The Night Walk Fundraising Page
Just a few months ago at age 32, my wife was diagnosed with a rare form of Non-Hodgkins T-Cell Lymphoma, stage 4. This diagnosis came as a surprise to our entire family and immediately set forth a sequence of events that will forever change our lives. With two young children and a husband to support, Marjeri has no choice but to fight for her life. She is currently in treatment for her condition, which doctors are very optimistic will be cured or forced into long-term remission over the next few months.
Despite the circumstances, I believe that everything happens for a reason. It is my goal to find the silver lining in this situation and pay it forward. At this time, we have devoted our time and energy into supporting critical research for Leukemia & Lymphoma patients who are facing tough odds. We are living in an extraordinary moment. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is on the brink of incredible breakthroughs that have already begun to change the lives of thousands of patients; treatments that can manage a person's condition with a daily pill, therapies that seek out cancer cells and kill them, and the use of a patient's own immune system to eradicate cancer not someday, but today.
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Light The Night Walk funds those treatments.
