Your Participation with Team Henry Makes a Difference!

Henry endured 9 months of treatments trying to cure his leukemia. Sadly, his body could take no more, and he died last year on October 16, 2015. More than 100 members of Team Henry gathered at Light the Night the following evening to mourn and celebrate his life. By example, Henry showed us how to live life with humor, love, and courage. Team Henry will come together again this year on October 15th, the day before the one year anniversary of Henry's death, to honor his spirit, celebrate his life, and to raise funds to help the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) support the research of blood cancer treatments.

Amazing advancements in research are getting LLS closer to fulfilling its mission: to create a world with no blood cancers, so that no child will have to suffer as Henry did, and no family will have to experience the loss of their son or daughter.

Please join Team Henry's effort by registering to walk or by making a donation.

Be sure to check our team Web site frequently to see our progress! We would love to expand Team Henry this year, so please share Henry's story and encourage others to joins us.

Thank you for being part of Team Henry.

    "Henry was so special to all his family and friends. We celebrate the 17 years of his life even as we are missing him terribly. This donation is to honor Henry, his brother Luke, and his Mom and Dad. We are thinking of Henry especially on May 3, 2016 when he would have turned 18. "

    "Although a year's anniversary is close at hand, not a day goes by without thinking of Henry's strength and the marvelous inspiration he showed during his battle. His smile and the joy that he gave to everyone set a standard and is a reminder of how lives are touched and how he and his family will remain in our thoughts, mind and hearts. God has provided a special place of honor for Henry, and he will be watching over the Light the Night Walk. It will take time for our hearts to find healing but all the memories will provide the strength. God Bless Henry Love, "Great Auntie" Lynn "

    "Last year's gathering meant a lot to me. The young people I've seen grow up at St. Mark's are a beloved part of my community and they become a little bit more mine when I go on a trip with them. So glad that Henry became a little bit more mine and so sad to lose him. Courage, comfort and solace to the whole family unit- Luke, Heather, Eric- extended family and frienily (to borrow a word from Paul & Pontheola). "
