Welcome to Our Light The Night Walk Team Fundraising Page!

Yes, our walk was October 3rd, 2105, but we have until the end of 2015 to continue to raise funds for LLS, so I'm not stopping!  I just believe so strongly that together we can fund & find a cure for cancer if we don't let up!  So please, any little donation you can contribute makes a difference!  From their web site:

  The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is the world's largest voluntary health agency dedicated to blood cancer. The LLS mission: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. LLS funds lifesaving blood cancer research around the world and provides free information and support services.

And here are some pictures from this year's walk!

And this is my original blog note:

I'd really love to do another half-marathon season with Team in Training, but I just don't have the time right now, so I thought we could do Light the Night this year instead.  The last time we did LTN was 2002.  Eric was 2 years old, and I was in my first year post-treatment for Hodgkin's Lymphoma.  Here we are in 2015 now.  14 years since diagnosis.  Eric starts high school in the fall.  And let's not forget Jack, the miracle post-cancer baby, who turns 10 this summer.  And I really feel like my chances of surviving would have been SO much slimmer if not for all the research funded by LLS.  That's why I want to help raise more money, for research, and for patient care for all of those who have been diagnosed since me, and all of those who are yet to be diagnosed.  Cancer still sucks!  But maybe with enough research money we can find a cure.  LLS says Someday Is Today.  Let's try to make that happen!

Here is a picture from my first Light the Night Walk in 2002.  Yes, that's Eric!  

Here are some more details from LLS:

The Light The Night Walk brings together families and communities to honor blood cancer survivors, as well as those lost to the diseases, and our team is helping to shine a light on the importance of finding cures and providing access to treatments for blood cancer patients.
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.

Please join our team's effort today by registering to walk or by making a donation. Your participation in the Light The Night Walk will save lives not someday, but today.

Be sure to check our team Web site frequently to see our progress!

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

Photo credits go to Pam Busch Murphy for both!
