This Year's Target
Mar 04, 2013 by Mandy Bladek

Once again, we're forming a team for Light The Night Walk and we hope you'll join us. In the past six years of participating in the Seattle Light the NIght walk, Team Firefly has raised over $74,000 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society! You have been a part of making a difference for patients and their families.

By joining our team and raising funds for this important cause, you'll be making a real impact on the fight against cancer. Walk night is a family-oriented evening in which participants carry illuminated balloons, raise awareness of blood cancers and come together as a caring community.

We all know someone who has been affected by cancer and our team honors several of them: Tyler Bledsoe, Cathy Frank, Hans Loland, and Darren Rozendaal. Please join our team and help us break the $100,000 mark this year! We have averaged $21,700 raised each year over the last 3 years. Doesn't that make $26,000 sound like it is within reach if we invite just a few more friends to join us?

Join today and let's get an early start on the fundraising!

Welcome to Team Firefly's homepage.

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 out 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 $30 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!
