Hi All!

This is a fundraiser, Light The Night Walk, that I am participating in on behalf of/for my Grandma, Norma Gonder, to raise funds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

As you know, my Grandma was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma, a blood cancer, last year and successfully, thus far, underwent an auto-transplant. Although, the advanced treatments have been successful, which we are truly grateful for, most likely my Grandma, like others, will have to have another transplant and/or treatments as the cancer can return. It has been tough but hopeful times for her and our family & friends as my Grandma continues to receive treatments which, for now, keep her blood counts where they need to be.

Being able to raise money for a cause that helps my Grandma and others like her is a wonderful and important thing to me and my Family. If you can help us out by just contibuting $10.00, it would be GREATLY APPRECIATED!

Please see the details below regarding the fundraiser....

Light The Night Walk is The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's annual fundraising walk to pay tribute and bring hope to people battling cancer. Hundreds of thousands of participants raise funds for lifesaving research and patient services.

For more than 60 years, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) has been solely focused on people with blood cancers. Presently, we have more than $250 million committed to research across the United States and in ten other countries. Every dollar is provided by concerned donors. We invest in the best, outcome based science:

  • Anywhere, with no geographic or institutional boundaries
  • Without profit incentive
  • To meet unmet Medicare needs of people with blood cancers

And LLS funded advances are helping patients beyond those for whom they were originally developed, including people with solid tumors and auto-immune diseases. In the past decade, nearly 50% (19 out of 39) of the cancer drugs approved by the FDA were approved as treatments for blood cancer patients. Twelve are already approved for people beyond those for whom they were first developed. With your help, we are saving lives.

  • A donation of $25 provides patients and their loved ones with FREE booklets that contain up-to-date information on their disease and help them make informed decisions about their treatment options.
  • A donation of $50 makes possible a Family Support group with a trained facilitator where comfort can be found and experiences can be shared among patients and family members.
  • A donation of $100 helps supply laboratory researchers with supplies and materials critical to carrying out their search for cures.
  • A donation of $1,000 makes possible one- on-one conversations with health care specialists who provide patients with information about their disease, treatment options, and helps prepare them with questions for their health care team.

Please make a donation of at least $10.00 to support my participation in the Light The Night Walk and help save lives. Be sure to check my Web site frequently to see my progress, and thanks for your support!
