Thanks to dedicated people like you, funds raised from The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Light The Night Walk help support the research of blood cancer treatments that save lives.

Candice Crume

LLS Honored Hero

​Survivor

Candice was diagnosed with B Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia shortly before her third birthday. Pale, yellow skin and the beginning of respiratory distress prompted a visit to the ER. The ER visit was the beginning of Candice’s emotional journey to diagnosis with an enlarged liver and heart and failing kidneys. She was eventually transported to a different hospital via helicopter because her little body was shutting down. After several days in the Pediatric ICU, she was officially diagnosed.

Candice began chemotherapy and her treatment was not without unexpected challenges. She faced a major setback when a blood clot in her leg hindered her ability to walk. Even in the midst of all the challenges, her affectionate, fun loving, and adventurous spirit could not be broken! As Candice’s mom, Angel, said, “If you want to see true strength, look into the eyes of a child that is in the fight of their life.” And fight she did.

Candice completed her treatment in July 2015 after two and a half years of fighting. Candice is now in 2nd Grade and doing wonderfully. Her fighting spirit and strength are a true testament to her resolve.

Candice knows that she isn't alone in this fight and that many other children and adults are still, literally, fighting for their lives.

The Power of your Donation!

  • $100 helps fund the First Connection Progra, which matches newly diagnosed patients with trained volunteers & survivors as mentors.
  • $300 helps fund 1 week of group support fro families dealing with blood cancer treatment.
  • $500 helps defray the costs of treatment-related travel for patients.

 

Without your efforts LLS could not fund the research of such treatments as targeted therapies that zero in on cancer cells and kill them or immunotherapy drugs that use a patient's own immune system to kill cancer.

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 save lives not someday, but today.

Be sure to check our team Web site frequently to see our progress!

 

 

Thank you for bringing us all closer to living in a world without blood cancers!
