Let's Cure This!


Here we go again- walking to cure leukemia! This time however, Air Steve is teaming up with family friend, 9 year old Sarah Jill (SJL) to raise even more money than we did in 2008! While Air Steve is battling CLL (chronic lymphocytic leukemia), Sarah is battling ALL (acute lymphoblastic leukemia), and will be having a Bone Marrow Transplant this July 2010. Watching these two remarkable people fight this disease head on with grace, perseverence, humor, and positive attitude makes finding inspiration to do whatever it takes to cure leukemia that much easier!


Please help us to reach or exceed our goal of $15,000 by October 14th 2010. To simply make a donation, please click on the DONATE TO TEAM icon located on the right side of this page. If you would like to be a part of the team and raise money that goes toward our team goal or if you would walk with us on October 14th, please click on the JOIN icon, located at the bottom of the TEAM page or contact Dena at 617-312-5056 and she will be happy to help walk you through the process! On behalf of Air Steve, SJL and their families, thank you for being part of our team!


Sincerely,


Steve, Lea, Dena, Blake, and Elena & Eric, Michelle, Rachel, and Sarah


MORE INFO ON LIGHT THE NIGHT:


Light The Night Walk is The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's evening walk and fundraising event. It is the nation's night to pay tribute and bring hope to thousands of people battling blood cancers and to commemorate loved ones lost.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) funds lifesaving research that has contributed to major advances in the treatment of blood cancers and treatments for other types of cancer, such as chemotherapy and stem cell transplants. New targeted therapies that kill cancer cells without harming normal tissue are providing drugs and procedures that are improving quality of life.

In fact, in 2009 alone, LLS researchers were conducting more than 90 clinical trials, a critical step in the development of new treatments and cures that will help patients live better, longer 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.
