Your support means a lot…to me and to thousands of others.
My name is Krissy. On Sept. 18, I will be walking in the Light the Night Walk of City Island, Harrisburg, PA. Light the Night is the nation's night to pay tribute to thousands of cancer survivor's battling blood cancers, and to remember those who bravely fought and lost. Light the Night is also an event in which walkers ask for donations for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society prior to the walk, so that The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society can carry on its lifesaving work. As a walker, I am asking you for a donation to support my participation in the Light the Night Walk and help save lives. A donation of any amount will help.
John getting chemo while awaiting his bone marrow transplant
I'll be walking because my husband has successfully battled both NHL and MDS, two blood cancers. In 2006 John had a bone marrow transplant. I'm hoping that someday there will be a cure to cancer, and others won't have to go through chemo and a bone marrow transplant like he did. But more importantly, I am walking so that nobody has to die from these horrible cancers.
What does The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society use your donation for? It's mission is to cure blood cancers, and funds go to enable researchers to investigate treatments and cures. LLS also provides free information such as brochures and teleconferences to those with a blood cancer diagnosis, runs support programs for these cancer survivors, and asks legislators to enact laws that will help those with blood cancers, in addition to providing many other services.
Please make a donation to support my participation in the Light the Night Walk and help save lives. Even a donation of $5.00 will help! Thanks.
