Welcome to our Team Page!!
Aug 23, 2011 by Lorri Nixon

Dear Family and Friends,

Thank you for taking the time to visit our family's homepage for the Light the Night Walk on October 5th in Pittsburgh. We decided to participate in the walk both for support and to raise funds for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. All the money donated will be used for lifesaving research and patient services.

As many of you know I have much to be thankful for having overcome many serious health issues including a cerebral aneurysm, seizure disorder, and a mini stroke. I currently am battling Aplastic Anemia and Leukemia. I am so thankful that between the health issues I taught elementary school, worked as a Reading Specialist on staff at Penn State New Ken, tutored many children in our community, married the most wonderful man and dad, and had three children. Brett is now 20, Heidi is 13 and Hayley is 8. God has blessed me with so many joys. My faith is the most important thing in my life and I love more than anything just being a mom.

Our family would like to thank all of you who have been so supportive with your friendship, kind words, meals, cards and most importantly your love and prayers. Please know how much all of you mean to us and we ask that you continue to pray that I would be healed. We sincerely appreciate your consideration of giving a financial gift to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. You can donate online or give us a check made out to LLS and we will turn it in the night of the walk. Pleae feel free to mail it to us at -322 Thornwood Drive Pittsburgh, PA 15239. Thank you, Love, Lorri
