Campaign to kick cancer to the curb!

  • CURES [kyoor] noun, verb: successful remedial treatment; restoration to health.
  • ROCK [rok] noun, verb: to affect deeply; stun; move or sway powerfully, as with excitement or emotion.

CURES ROCK! became my war cry as I battled cancer, and over time, it's morphed into a growing, grassroots organization and crusade of my friends, family, co-workers and advocates who made a solidarity pact to fundraise, fight for and find a cure for cancer in my lifetime. Cancer may have rocked my world, but cures will rock the planet!

The Light The Night event will rock San Diego on November 20, 2009!

Light The Night Walk is The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's evening walk and fundraising event. It is the nation's night to pay tribute and bring hope to thousands of people battling blood cancers and to commemorate loved ones lost.

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.

Why YOUR Donation Rocks!:

I was diagnosed with leukemia in 2006 and have battled cancer three times. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) provides incredible research funding and patient programs within their mission to find a cure for blood canceres. Your donation may save a life of someone you love!

Why did I form Team "Cures Rock!" and why am I doing this event?

(See the previous paragraph.) This team was created so my friends, family and local advocates in San Diego could rally in support of the LLS, raise funds, and spread cancer awareness through the our San Diego community in a beautiful event honoring those in our lives that have battled this disease.

Please make a donation to support of my participation in the Light The Night Walk and help save lives. Also, you can JOIN OUR CURES ROCK! TEAM!
