Why I'm Involved
Oct 01, 2017

"Remember that the happiest people are not those getting more, but those giving more."

- H Jackson Brown Jr.


     Like many, my family has a history of cancer, specifically blood cancer. While my grandfather responded well to treatments and was able to take leukemia pills towards the end of his life, my aunt was not as lucky. She went through many forms of treatment but nothing helped with her multiple myeloma and she passed away in 2004. Many people have stories similar to that of my aunt, and they are the reason that I am involved with Light the Night.

      Leukemia and Lymphoma Society exists to give those living with blood cancers hope. Every 3 minutes someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer, and LLS is working reduce that statistic. LLS provides specialized treatment and education to patients and their families who may be suffering from a wide range of blood cancers. LLS also provides financial support to patients for their treatments so that they can focus on fighting for their lives rather than how they or their families will pay for the necessary care. Donations helps real people who are suffering from cancer all across the nation. 

     I appreciate any donation you are able to give, because I know how greatly it will help the lives of so many who are fighting their hardest battle right now. Through these donations we are not only funding Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, but more importantly the thousands of people LLS helps each year. We have the opportunity to give these patients some kind of peace and assurance that they are being helped in the best way possible amid all of the fear that comes after their diagnosis. 

     I would love your help in supporting these people during their darkest times. 


Here's to finding a cure,

Rachel Gates
