Upcoming Event:

Light The Night event at the Mason Manicipal Building, September 15, 2011.

There will be a white tent with our team name, Blazin With Love, on it. Please meet there at 5:50 pm. for a team picture. Our team will also be leading the walk which starts around 7:30 pm, in the front of the Manicipal Building.

Liz had just turned 14 when she was diagonsed on Oct. 25, 2008 with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. Her treatment consisted of several different chemo's, in various forms, such as pills (up to 25 per day), shots of chemo in the muscle, visceral (vien), cranial radiation, steroids, bone marrow aspirates, lumbar punctures with chemo., MRI's, bi weekly blood draws and two full years of missed school. Her end of treatment was February 15, 2011.

Joel was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia on June 11, 2008. After two years of treatment, he relapsed in his central nervous system in October 2010. On February 1, 2011 he was given a bone marrow transplant, with his sister Allison being the donor. We pray that he will be fully recovered, and CURED, by the time of the 2011 Light the Night Walk.

Maya Collins is 7 years old and was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) on April 6, 2011. She was checked into the hospital that day and hasn't been home since. She has undergone 2 rounds of intense chemotherapy and is scheduled for a bone marrow transplant in August. She will remain in the hospital for at least 100 days after the transplant and after returning home will be in "quarantine" for most of the rest of the year. She will probably not return to school this year. We pray that the bone marrow transplant will CURE her of this awful disease.

Hannah was diagnosed December 9, 2002 with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia. After twenty seven months of chemotherapy she finished her treatment in February of 2005 and is in remission. Hannah is experiencing some learning difficulties as a result of the chemotherapy used during her treatment, however, like with the cancer, she is working hard to overcome her challenges.

Annie was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in March, 2006, during her sixth grade school year. Her only symptom was an enlarged tonsil, and when her tonsils were removed the diagnosis was made. When the doctors discovered that the cancer had spread to other lymph nodes and that her cancer was stage two, she underwent a more extensive surgery. Annie was treated with four one-week rounds of chemotherapy in the hospital, with two weeks at home in between each round.

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.

Please join our team's effort today by registering to walk or by making a donation. Your participation in the Light The Night Walk will help save lives. Be sure to check our team Web site frequently to see our progress, and thanks for your support!
