The Pirates of the CUREibbean Homepage
Jul 26, 2013

Welcome to our Light The Night Walk Team 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.

In 2012, we renamed our team the "Pirates of the CUREibbean" to highlight the focus of our fundraising efforts- to find a cure for all blood cancers. Last year our team raised$10,216 and came in 14th in fundraising out of over 200 teams at the Pittsburgh walk! We are so proud of this accomplishment. This year we have set a goal of $11,000!

Our team is fortunate to have two blood cancer "survivors" on our team. Heidi beat Hodgkin's Lymphoma 8 years ago and Mandy is 3.5 years into remission from non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. We walk to help ensure that others will be so fortunate.

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!
