Welcome to Our Light The Night Walk Team Fundraising Page

Sarah's Spurs was started by a group of inpatient oncology nurses at Seton Medical Center Austin, all of whom have been affected by cancer in many different ways. As oncology nurses, we support all different kinds of cancer and have loved ones who have been affected. However, blood cancer is particularly difficult for us. 

Sarah worked on the inpatient oncology unit for eight months, beginning her career as a new graduate. After working three 12-hour shifts in a row, Sarah was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) and was admitted as a patient on March 2, 2017. She became a patient of her co-workers and started chemotherapy. 

Sarah went through 5 rounds of chemotherapy and with every round came a hospital admission where she was taken care of by her co-workers. While it was tough for everyone, Sarah and her family showed amazing strength and endurance.

We are happy to announce that Sarah is now in remission and back to work on the inpatient oncology unit at SMCA. She is back to working full time and serving those patients that are now walking the same path. 

What started out as a group of Sarah's co-workers has turned into many more family members and friends wanting to join and help us fight against blood cancer. We are renewing Sarah's Spurs to participate in Light the Night and fundraise for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS). The money that is raised through Light the Night supports life-saving research, helps provide free education for patients, and ensures that patients have access to the treatment they need. 

We are selling Sarah's Spurs t-shirts as a fundraiser and to rep our team! The fundraiser is open until June 22 so use the link below to order! The order will be shipped to us and then distributed!
