Welcome to our team's Light The Night Walk Team homepage!

We are Chelle's Sunshines and we are walking in memory of Renee Frost who lost her battle against myelodisplastic syndrome in 2007 at the age of 45, and Brittany Clark who lost her battle with leukemia in 2006 at the age of 16, Keegan Marshall who lost his battle with leukemia at age 7 in 2011, as well as in support of Renee's daughter Chelle Frost (28) who is currently battling myelodisplastic syndrome, Carl Descoteaux (29) who is fighting Hodgkins lymphoma, and all who battle blood cancer, the family, friends and loved ones of those fighting, those fallen and those who have overcome.

As you can see from our photos this is a fight very important and personal to many many young people in our area; young people with so much to live for and so much to fight for. Together we plan to fight this battle to a victory and a better future for ourselves and others in our community and around the world. Help us to absolutely shatter our $5,000 goal and show blood cancer that we will fight back!

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 $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!
