Welcome to my Light The Night Walk homepage.

Sammy has been fighting Leukemia for over a year now and is winning! He is in remission and is back to school doing 'normal' things again. He has a long road ahead of him, but Sammy is making wonderful progress thanks to all the love and support of his friends and family, and the dedication of his team of doctors, nurses, and supporting staff at Montefiore Hospital. By raising money, we can help make sure Sammy and many children like him are given a chance to have a future free of toxic 'late effects' caused by the chemo treatments. Reasearch is looking at ways to reduce the physical and cognitive disabilities many children face after treatment; but most importantly, it is saving lives.

Light The Night Walk is The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's evening walk and fundraising event. It is the nation's night to pay tribute and bring hope to thousands of people battling blood cancers and to commemorate loved ones lost.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) funds lifesaving research that has contributed to major advances in the treatment of blood cancers and treatments for other types of cancer, such as chemotherapy and stem cell transplants. New targeted therapies that kill cancer cells without harming normal tissue are providing drugs and procedures that are improving quality of life.

In fact, in 2009 alone, LLS researchers were conducting more than 90 clinical trials, a critical step in the development of new treatments and cures that will help patients live better, longer 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 make a donation to support my participation in the Light The Night Walk and help save lives. Be sure to check my Web site frequently to see my progress, and thanks for your support!
