Welcome to my Light The Night Walk homepage.

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. These treatments have helped patients live better, longer lives. New targeted therapies that kill cancer cells without harming normal tissue are providing drugs and procedures that are improving quality of life.

On June 8, 2007 my then 36 year old husband was diagnosed with Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBL or DLBCL), it is a type of aggressive lymphoma. It accounts for approximately 40% of lymphomas among adults. It is a day that I will never forget, a day that changed our lives forever. Luckily the doctors caught this cancer in it's earliest stage. After a regime of R-CHOP chemotherapy and radiation to the involved area he is cured of this cancer.

We walk as a family in celebration of his recovery. Helping to earn funds so that others hopefully will not have to go through what my husband andso many others have. Funds raised by walkers provide:

*Lifesaving blood cancer research *Financial assistance to cover patient expenses for transportation, medication and testing *Free educational materials and events for patients and their families

*Local programs such as Family Support Groups and First Connection, a peer-to-peer counseling program *Comprehensive, personalized assistance through our Information Resource Center
