I have been working with LLS for 10 years now and I have heard countless stories that bring tears to my eyes  but there are also numerous with happy endings.  The happy endings are what inspire me to be truly passionate about my involvement with LLS.  It is a mission and the reason I love working with them year after year. Every year, the entire LLS staff, along with our family members, friends and co-workers, walk together at Light The Night Walks throughout North America.  With the funds we raise, we are making cures happen by providing patient support services, advocacy for lifesaving treatments and the most promising cancer research anywhere. And it's all happening NOW. Not someday, TODAY!

 Last year we raised over $1,663!! THANK YOU to my co-workers, family & friends! Special thanks to Mrs. Rogers, Joan Vines, Thomas Cooper, Shannon Maloney,Tracy Lewis, the Luchs family, Judy Galer Burcu Selmi, the Ragland family, Manish Sanghai, and Lorel Scott. We couldn't have done it without YOU!
