Because Cancer Research Works
Dear Family & Friends,
Welcome to my Light The Night Walk homepage. The Light The Night Walk is The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's nationwide walk to raise awareness and funds to cure leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.
We're participating in the walk in honor of all individuals who are battling blood cancer. These people are the real heroes, and we need your support to help accelerate cures and give hope to patients and their families. Although research is responsible for increasing survival rates for these diseases, the battle is far from over. Did you know that:
- Every five minutes, someone in this country is diagnosed with blood cancer: Every ten minutes, someone loses the fight.
- Leukemia causes more deaths than any other cancer among children.
- Lymphomas are the most common blood cancers.
- The myeloma survival rate is only 32 percent.
Please make a donation to support our participation in the Light The Night Walk. By doing so, we’ll both be helping save lives. Donations, which are fully tax-deductible, can be made securely online via credit card (at this website) or by personal check. If a credit card is used you will receive an email receipt of your donation for tax purposes. Checks should be made out to the "Leukemia & Lymphoma Society" and sent to my home address: 814 Boal Pkwy., Winnetka, IL 60093. I will then forward the checks on to the L&L Society. (****Fellow Goldman Sachs employees.**** Please note that GS will now match your donation. Details can be found on the GS Home Page under the "Community" tab ).
Be sure to check this Web site frequently to see our progress. Thanks for your support. Gratefully yours, PK
