SHOOT AND SCORE FOR A CURE!!!
Thanks for visiting Andrew's Light The Night homepage. This is Team Hughes' 4th year walking!!! We will keep shooting for the cure!!!! This year Team Hughes will be walking in IDA LEE PARK on SATURDAY OCTOBER 11th. ANDREW HUGHES is Team Hughes' brave leader. He completed treatment in February!! Long 3 1/2 years. He is in remission. We need to continue to bring hope to thousands of patients battling blood cancers and to commemorate loved ones lost.
The Society funds lifesaving cancer research that has contributed to major advances in the treatment of blood cancers and many other types of cancer treatments such as chemotherapy and stem cell transplants that have prolonged and enhanced the lives of patients. New targeted therapies that kill cancer cells without harming normal tissue have already begun to provide drugs and procedures that are improving quality of life.
But more research is critically needed:
- Every five minutes someone is diagnosed with blood cancer. Every ten minutes, someone dies.
- Leukemia causes more deaths among children than any other cancer
- More than 20,000 Americans died from lymphoma in 2006
- The survival rate for myeloma is just 33 per cent
