Welcome to The Dominator's Light The Night Walk homepage.

It is that time of year again, where our family fundraises to give back to an organization that helps to raise funds to find a cure for blood cancers! This is a cause near and dear to hearts, as our 6 year old son, Dominic was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) at the age of 22 months. The treatment for this type of cancer for a boy is 3 years of chemotherapy. When Dominic was 4 years old and only 4 months away from completing his treatment, he was diagnosed with a secondary cancer, Diffused Large B Cell Lymphoma(DLBL), which was unrelated to the original ALL diagnosis. The treatment for DLBL was intensive IV chemotherapy. Ryan and I spent at least every 2 weeks in the hospital with our little boy, as he received chemo and transfusions to help his low immune system. It was a tough and trying time on our family, but our boy is a HERO!

Although Dominic has undergone quite a bit in his life, we are very HAPPY to say that today, Dominic has been chemo-free and in remission for 1 year and 3 months! He is now a 1st grader, who is into golf, drawing, and playing with his friends and his 2 year old brother. He received the honor of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) honored hero for their annual golf tournament, where Dominic kicked butt and played 18 holes of golf. This brought tears to our eyes, as Ryan and I have never seen our son so energetic. This year LLS has again honored Dominic as their Boy of the Year! With all the amazing organizations out there helping to raise funds for cancer, we dedicate our time to Light the Night and LLS, because of their endless support to our family and because we have seen first hand what a blood cancer can do and we will fight to find a cure.

Please help us in our fight and join our team "The Dominators" and walk with us and Dominic on November 2nd. If you can't join us, then please help us reach our goal and donate! Every little bit helps!!! Help us spread the word and forward our website via email, facebook, twitter, etc! With a little over a month left until the walk, we want to work hard to reach our goal. Thank you for your support!

With Love,

The McLaughlin's

(Ryan, Heather, Dominic, & Joseph)

    "Keep up the good work and congratulations on fighting the good fight!! May Dominic live happy, healthy and in remission for the rest of his life. This donation is being made for my little brother who fought hard but ultimately lost his battle to Leukemia when he was just 6 1/2. I appreciate you walking for those who are unable. May God Bless you and your family. My very best, Jennifer Moore"
