Welcome to My Light The Night Walk Fundraising Page!

Yes, I've had cancer (been there, done that, thankfully).

No, it wasn't leukemia or lymphoma but let me explain why I am supporting this effort....

I had thyroid cancer but you're not going to see me on any thyroid cancer walks. My rationale is that if you have to spin the wheel of cancer, you'd like to land on "FREE" but if you don't get that lucky, thryoid is a better landing than most. So, I feel like I had it easy, compared to others.

It's the others that I'm walking for, especially for my friend at work who is battling a nasty one (she landed badly when she had to spin the wheel, twice). I want her to be well and I want her to be able to watch her kids grow up and I want to have coffee with her when we're old and wrinkly. (I'm a lot closer to that than she is, which is another thing that makes it so hard to watch what she is going through so bravely.)

The great thing (in an odd way) about leukemia and lymphoma is that because they are cancers of the blood, they can be studied outside the body. It means that scientists can easily do research on them. It means that scientists make discoveries that benefit not just leukemia and lymphoma, but all kinds of cancers (and there are lots of kinds of cancers). 

If you're a Cubs fan, you can donate to support Anthony Rizzo, the best first baseman in the world and a Hodgkin's Lymphoma survivor.

If you're a When Harry Met Sally fan, you can donate to support Nora Ephron, one of the world's funniest women, author of the movie script, and a leukemia survivor... or at least was a survivor until 2012. (Thank you, Linda for bringing me up to speed!)

If you're a Jule fan, you can donate to support anybody you want to honor or simply wish me well (I think I'm going to need Kleenex on this walk....)

Please click to donate and help me support the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Light the Night Walk. Thank you :)
