Welcome to my Light The Night Walk Fundraising Page

     This year I decided to walk with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society for three reasons. One is in memory of my next door neighbor Jimmy Krueger who passed away at 16 from Leukemia.

      Second, on March 2012, my co-worker John at 31 had blurred vision. He went to the eye doctor and the doctor said something did not look right. The next day his blood test came back with a white blood count of 265,000 (normal is less than 10,000). He was told he had Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia. That was the last thing he thought he would hear.  He then asked if was he going to die. Today he is slowly improving with the great research and drugs such as Gleevec. 

     Another one of my fellow co-workers, Seth Cogan at 36 developed Hodgkin's Stage 4 Lymphoma. I remember how weak he was during his 8 months of chemo. Since it was 20 years later than Jimmy's Leukemia, there were new treatments available to him. He is now a survivor and has been in remission for 12 years.

     Charities like this one have done an amazing job in extending the lives of people with Leukemia.  Therefore, I'm asking you to donate to my Light the Night fundraising page for Light the Night!

     Your donation will help fund treatments that save lives every day; like immunotherapies that use a person’s own immune system to kill cancer. You may not know it, but every single donation helps save a life with breakthrough therapies such as these.

Please join our team's effort today by making a donation.

You can make a donation in any of the following ways:

  • By Credit Card. You can make a secure, tax-deductable donation through this page by clicking on the red “Donate” button to the right
  • By Check.  Please make checks payable to “The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society” with my name in the memo line and send to the following address:

In addition to participating in the 2015 Light The Night Walk benefiting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), I am one of 10 Long Island executives nominated to participate in the 2015 Executive Challenge. The challenge is a two month competition – whoever raises the most funds within that period will be named Long Island’s winning challenger for the year. My personal goal is to raise $18,000.

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