Welcome to Our Light The Night Walk Team Fundraising Page

By the time we make this walk Michael will have been gone for over 3 years.  I say gone, but not really gone, he is in our hearts always.  He will again be making this walk with us.  In the time since his death we, team PressOn for Michael, have raised over $30,000 for the fight against blood cancers.


Michael was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) on Monday September 14, 2015. He was so strong that we had no idea he was so sick as he was.  Unfortunately, the very next morning when we were preparing to get the first dose of chemotherapy started he was discovered to have intracranial hemorrhaging.  At that point the AML became a background to trying to get the bleeding and swelling in his brain under control.  However, on Friday September 18, 2015 it became clear that we were losing him.  And at 10:52 am that morning we said good-bye to our beloved Michael.  He was surrounded by love and those who loved him most.

Please take time to think about making a donation towards the hope that no other family will have to endure the pain and loss that we have.

Michael would want us to try to prevent this for other families.

It is important to raise money for this cause in the hope that we can save other families and friends from having to go through the pain that we have all endured.  Michael loved life and having fun, so he would truly enjoy all of us walking together.

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.

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.

Be sure to check our team page frequently to see our progress!

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