Join me, Charles Esten - Deacon Claybourne from ABC's "NASHVILLE" - as I walk with fans, friends and families across the country in this year's Light The Night Walk. It is my pleasure to serve as the 2014 Light The Walk Night National Friends and Family Team Honorary Chairperson!


The Light The Night Walk is The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's evening walk and fundraising event to pay tribute and bring hope to people battling cancer. Thousands of participants raise funds for vital research and patient services and on these special nights they carry illuminated balloons in support of those who have survived, those battling and those who have lost their fight with cancer.


Thanks to your generous support, last year we raised over $511,000 to help The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) accelerate cures for leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma.  A giant THANK YOU to ABC and “Who Wants to be a Millionaire?” for the opportunity to share my family's story and help other families in the ongoing fight against blood cancers.  I had the privilege to appear on the show and won $500,000 for LLS! Visit https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U_hBj4xyRBQ to see that very special moment!


As a result of your involvement, hundreds of thousands of people diagnosed with blood cancer are today living normal, productive lives.  We are on the threshold of amazing breakthroughs. Your money accelerates miraculous new treatments and healing therapies once thought impossible. My daughter Addie is herself a leukemia survivor. She has been healthy and cancer-free for over ten beautiful years and is why I am honored to represent The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and help raise more funds for the life-saving research and patient family services the Society provides.


Unfortunately, the fight remains difficult for many family and friends we know who are battling cancer today. But, together we can make a difference and help those patients and their families who are on the front lines of the battle. Here’s how you can help:


  • Join our Team Addie (click on "JOIN" button below), or start a Team Charles Esten in your area!  
  • Make a tax-deductible donation to a team member

All walkers are encouraged to become Champions For Cures by raising $100 or more to help fight blood cancer. Walkers who raise $100 or more will receive night of walk benefits, including:

  • Light The Night T-Shirt
  • Light The Night Walk balloon
  • Wristband, which entitles a participant to food and refreshments

Becoming a Champion For Cures is even easier when you look at matching gift opportunities. Matching gifts are a great way to watch your contributions grow. Do you have a matching gift program at your place of employment? Contact your human resources department to learn how to apply and receive these additional funds. Remind your donors as well! Your effort to secure matching gifts from your company and encourage your donors to do so will multiply the impact on the LLS mission to support patients and find cures!


Let's raise money and walk to cure cancer! Donate today or join our team today!  Thank you for all you do to support patients!

You were a sweet, innocent three year old child when you got your news. I knew that if you could fight through it, so could I. I am inspired by your strength and determination and your beautiful spirit. I wish I could walk arm in arm with you. Know that we will be thinking of you every step of the way!"
