Welcome to my Light The Night Walk Fundraising Page


My name is Emma and I am a leader in The Young Hearts, and we will be participating in the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Light the Night Walk in October 2015. This is a very special and meaningful event for so many people and I encourage all to make a donation to the cause and to join us in the fight against blood cancers!


The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) funds the research and development of therapies that save thousands of lives every day. Two examples are targeted therapies that seek out cancer cells and kill them, and the use of a patient's own immune system to kill cancer. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Light The Night Walk helps fund those treatments for patients like Joseph, a leukemia survivor.

At just 9 years old, Joseph was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). LLS was there with Joseph and his family from the very beginning with friendship, support and critical treatment information, through daily chemo, aches and pains, weight gain, lumbar punctures and daily clinic visits. Now Joseph is in remission.

Joseph's is just one of the thousands of lives saved because of the LLS work supported by people like you.


Please make a donation and check my Web site frequently to see my progress.


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


Here are some pictures from the Light the Night walk in 2014, where I was able to donate 9 inches of hair to Children With Hair Loss
