Please help us support The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Light The Night Walk by donating towards our fundraising efforts today. You can help bring us closer to living in a world without cancers!

 

Tammy's Troopers and Why We Walk: 

Tammy was diagnosed with Chronic Myeloid Leukemia in September 2008 with Philadelphia chromosome positive chronic myeloid leukemia (Ph+ CML), which in the past almost always carried a survival rate of maybe five years with traditional treatment. Her oncologist was excited to share with her that she would be the perfect candidate for a newer, targeted chemotherapy known as Gleevec. This treatment, which was made possible through research funded in part by the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, was approved by the FDA in 2001. She began treatment with Gleevec in October 2008, and was in remission by December of that same year. Tammy is most grateful that she has been able to continue to enjoy life to its fullest each and every day.

 

This year, our team is walking in honor of Crista Cole, who underwent a Stem Cell Transplant for Hodgkins Lymphoma Stage 4 in July 2017 and in memory of George McDaniel, who passsed passed away in July 2017 from Acute Myeloid Leukemia.

 

 

 

 

The mission of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and the Light the Night walk has been so important to Tammy not only as a leukemia patient, but because she has known others who have experienced blood and bone marrow related cancers, and she sees how research has improved the treatment and prognosis for many.  Tammy has been humbled to serve this year as an Honored Patient Hero and to share the mission of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and its Light the Night Event. 

 

We hope you'll consider a tax-deductible donation to support Tammy's Troopers as we walk to support the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in its efforts to eradicate blood cancers. And if you want to experience a beautiful and meaningful event, join our team by clicking on the link above. We would love to have you walk with us on Saturday, October 7 at Innsbrook!

 

Thank you!
