Sue's Sunshine Page
Oct 02, 2013

Our friend and neighbor Sue Colangelo has Multiple Myeloma, a cancer of the plasma cells.  Sue was diagnosed 4½ years ago.  During that time she has had a Stem Cell transplant, radiation, been on a Clinical Drug Trial, and had Chemotherapy three times.  She has never been in remission but Sue somehow always manages to focus on the positives. 

There is no cure currently but LLS is close to finally finding a cure and supports nearly 400 researchers around the world. For example, since Sue was diagnosed, six new drugs for Multiple Myeloma have been approved and others are in clinical trials. That’s why we support the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS includes Multiple Myeloma and all blood cancers).  

In 2012 Sue's Sunshine team formed as a core group of friends and neighbors of Brier Creek Country Club. They raised over $6,700 for their first Light the Night Walk. This year, a new team goal has been set of $10,000 and we need your help to achieve this.

So who are we?

There's a small but energetic planning committee comprising

(Left to right, bottom> top) Margaret, Sue, Bea, Tricia, Sherry & Jessie

There's also the larger team called Sue's Sunshine which can include you! This team is all of us who are walking or fundraising to support the Light the Night Walk. Find out how you can participate viewing our web page www.suessunshine.com
