You did it! You reached the Kerrigan's Krusaders Light The Night Walk Team homepage! This year's event is Thursday, October 6th at Fraze Pavillion in Kettering. It's the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's annual fundraising walk to pay tribute and bring hope to people battling cancer. Hundreds of thousands of walkers raise funds for lifesaving research and patient services. Last year, our honored hero was my friend and former co-host on K-99.1-FM, Steve Kerrigan. Even tho he was fighting multiple myeloma, Steve spoke words of encouragement and gave us all hope. Although he waged a brave and courageous battle, we lost him in March this year. My heart is broken to think all of us who knew and loved him will never see his smile or hear his laughter again. Imagine the heart ache of losing a loved one to cancer. But he would want us to keep going so someday, no one else has to feel that loss.
That's why it's important now more than ever that we continue to "fight back." LLS has been waging the war for over 60 years, and right now, more than $250 million is committed to research across the United States and in ten other countries, thanks to generous people like you. With your help, we are saving lives. We don't ever want to lose another Steve. Here's how you can help...
- 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 join Kerrigan's Krusaders October 6th by registering to walk with us or making a donation. Your participation in the Light The Night Walk will help save lives. Can we count on you? Steve would be so proud and honored for you to join the fight. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
