Team Grad

Team Grad fundraises in memory of Sam Grad, who we lost to lymphoma in 2014. As his family and friends (also known as "Sam's Army"), we still fundraise today in hopes of finding a cure to blood cancers. Sam has inspired us to raise over $100,000 for LLS since 2013 and we couldn't have done it without his community of incredibly generous supporters! Though we may not all be together to participate in Boston's Light the Night Walk, we are using this page to  collect donations for this important organization through December 31, 2018. We know many of you, like us, have appreciated having a way to honor Sam's memory so please consider donating here! 


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.

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

    "I am sorry I didn?t get a chance to know Sam but none the less the Brad family are like my US family ( I am from Scotland) and I grieved alongside them at the time and still think of him now. Thanks to the Grad family for doing this great work and Sam?s light continues to shine amongst all all , a true beacon of love and courage. "
