Welcome to the Light the Night fundraising homepage for Lisa Sims.

I walk this walk on behalf of my Daddy, Don K. Pennie who passed away from a sudden diagnosis of Leukemia in 2004. I walk for my mom, who is in remission from Lymphoma and colon cancer. I have been a part of this walk both on the Peninsula and in San Francisco for over 6 years and those walks have raised over $70,000.00. I hope to continue my efforts with your help.

If you too, have been affected by cancer in your family or in your community, you too see the need to find a cure. The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society make it a habit to help those suffering not just from the stated cancers, but from all types of cancers. As you know medical research is done constantly to find a cure for cancer and with this research it is not always hit or miss. Sometimes a miss for one cancer is a great hit for another. So support me in my walk. Fight with me either through donation or by joining me on Thursday, October 21st in San Francisco's Union Square.

Here is more information about the walk:

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. New targeted therapies that kill cancer cells without harming normal tissue are providing drugs and procedures that are improving quality of life.

In fact, in 2009 alone, LLS researchers were conducting more than 90 clinical trials, a critical step in the development of new treatments and cures that will help patients live better, longer 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 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!
