Welcome to Our Light The Night Walk Team Fundraising Page

At the beginning of 2017 Ryan was excelling as a 2nd year med student at the University of Arizona. During the ensuing months he began to experience fatigue, weight loss, and loss of appetite. On April 7, 2017 Ryan received that dreaded and life changing phone call: Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML). A few days later Ryan was checked into Banner University Medical Center in Tucson, AZ for his first cycle of chemo. It soon became apparent that he would need a bone marrow transplant. Thankfully, Ryan's youngest sister, Anna, proved to be a perfect match. On August 3rd Ryan celebrated his new birthday as he received the bone marrow transplant from Anna. His journey with AML is far from over. In the meantime, we cheer Ryan on and pray that one day he'll be able to done that white coat once again.

Thanks to dedicated people like you, funds raised from The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Light The Night Walk help support the research of blood cancer treatments that save lives.

Without your efforts LLS could not fund the research of such treatments as targeted therapies that zero in on cancer cells and kill them or immunotherapy drugs that use a patient's own immune system to kill cancer.

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 save lives not someday, but today.

Thank you for bringing us all closer to living in a world without blood cancers!
