Welcome to Toni's Light The Night Walk Fundraising Page

I may have moved out of the area, but I'm still committed to raise awareness and funds to support the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.  For the past 8 years along with my colleagues at ECC I've asked you to help me support LSS in memory of my father-in-law and grandmother.  I hope you continue to do so.  Please help me support The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Light The Night Walk by donating towards my fundraising efforts today. You can help bring us closer to living in a world without cancers!

By giving a donation today, you can help children like Molly. At just 5 years old, Molly was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). LLS was there with her and her family from the very beginning with friendship, support, through daily chemo, aches and pains, weight changes, hair loss, and hospital stays. Now, Molly is in remission.  This is such a wonderful outcome and that's what I want to see happen for everyone!

Money raised from the Light The Night Walk allows The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) to fund over $1 billion in cancer research, and assist over 55,000 patients who are suffering from all forms of blood cancers afford their treatments. LLS' funding saves thousands of lives every day. Molly's life was saved because of LLS' work supported by people like you.  

During August the US Food and Drug Administration approved the first gene theraphy called CAR-T for patients with B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) who did not respond to previous treatments.  Through your donations LLS has invested $40 million in CAR-T immunotherapy funding researchers and companies around the work, including the approved therapy.  On a more understandable level 10-year-old Austin Shuetz has remained cancer-free for more than five years after being in the clinical trial for CAR-T.  Before that the relapsed times and his family had run out of options.  See the wonders of your donations.  How can you not help with this type of result?

Please make a donation to continue to help children like Molly and Austin and check my Web site frequently to see my progress.

Thank you for your generosity!
