Welcome to Colton's ARMY Light The Night Walk Team homepage.

After being diagnosed with high risk Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia on September 11, 2009 and undergoing a life-saving bone marrow transplant in January 2010 and a life-saving stem cell transplant in March 2011 - we believe that research money and advancements in the treatment for this disease have blessed us with our Colton here today. Please join us in the Fight against this horrible disease...YES, YOU can help make a difference for heros like Colton and many others like him. Thank you in advance for joining our team, for your generous donations, and for CARING for Colton! We pray that Colton will be blessed with many more birthdays.

Colton will be leading our team on September 24th

as we walk for a REASON, for a life MISSION and that is to strike OUT Blood CANCERS for GOOD!!

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.

We invest in the best, outcome based science:

  • Anywhere, with no geographic or institutional boundaries
  • Without profit incentive
  • To meet unmet Medicare needs of people with blood cancers

And LLS funded advances are helping patients beyond those for whom they were originally developed, including people with solid tumors and auto-immune diseases. In the past decade, nearly 50% (19 put of 39) of the cancer drugs approved by the FDA were approved as treatments for blood cancer patients. Twelve are already approved for people beyond those for whom they were first developed.

With your help, we are saving lives.

  • 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 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!
