Welcome to the "Team Jason" Light The Night Walk Homepage.

Jason Harmon fought like hell to beat Burkitt's Lymphoma. He was diagnosed on May 28, 2008 and started treatment later that day. He survived countless chemotherapy treatments, radiation treatments, surgeries, and a grueling stem cell transplant over the course of the following 8 months. But nothing could kill his cancer. In March of 2009, Jason was told he was out of options. Even then, he didn't give up. He fought to find other doctors and other treatment options. But, in early May, it became clear that Jason would not win this battle. He was told time was running out. He proceeded to spend as much time as possible with those around him, those who love him. On May 28, 2009, exactly one year to the day of his diagnosis, Jason lost his battle with lymphoma.

Jason and his partner, Stuart, participated in the Light The Night Walk in 2008. Each raised more than $1,000 for the LLS. They were amazed at the sight of it all...the hundreds of glowing balloons parading down the street. It was truly awe-inspiring. This year, on October 18th, our glowing balloons will be shining with pride and purpose in honor of Jason and in memory of a great man who never let cancer get the better of him.

We'd like for you to join us in our walk. You can join to walk with us by clicking "Join Team" at the bottom of the page, or you can donate money to support our team. Anything you can do to help Team Jason shatter our goal will be greatly appreciated. If you're donating money, you can donate to the Team as a whole by clicking "Donate Now" on this page. Your donation will be split among all the walkers. If you'd like to donate to a particular walker, just click on the name to the right to go to his or her individual page.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) funds lifesaving research that has contributed to major advances in the treatment of blood cancers and treatments for other types of cancer, such as chemotherapy and stem cell transplants. These treatments have helped patients live better, longer lives. New targeted therapies that kill cancer cells without harming normal tissue are providing drugs and procedures that are improving quality of life.

  • 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 to support our participation in the Light The Night Walk and help honor the life and legacy of the man we all love. Be sure to check this site frequently to see our progress, and thanks for your support!

    "I am donating and participating in this walk in honor of the many patients that I have met and are still with us and to the many patients that I have met and witnessed them leaving this world. Cancer is such a scary and hateful thing, but everyone is fighting and is so strong. I am praying for all and I am proud to say that I am a nurse on the Bone Marrow Transplant Unit. I love working on this unit and meeting wonderful patients and their sweet families. Stay strong and keep fighting. I am very sadden from the patients we have lost and I am praying for the ones we have and their families. "But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their STRENGTH; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint". Isaiah 40:31 :) "
