Your support means a lot…to me and to thousands of others. Join us Friday, October 24, 2008 at the Mizner Park Amphitheater!
See pictures from last year.
This is Rosemary, who recently passed away from lymphoma. She was a spirited and courageous woman who did some amazing things and made a difference in kitties' and people's lives. She was already an angel.
Thanks for visiting my Light The Night Walk homepage. Light The Night is the nation’s night to pay tribute and bring hope to thousands of patients battling blood cancers and to commemorate loved ones lost.
I walk at Light the Night with Eileen's team, Danny's Angels. If you haven't met these people, you need to! These are really great people.
This year I am also walking in the honor and memory of Rosemary, pictured above. I cannot tell you enough how wonderful she was, and I'm honored to get the chance to help others in her name.
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) 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 helped patients live better, longer lives. New targeted therapies that kill cancer cells without harming normal tissue are providing drugs and procedures that are improving the quality of life.
- 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.
- A donation of $25 provides patients and their loved ones with FREE booklets that contain up-to-date information on their disease and help them make informed decisions about their treatment options.
- A donation of $50 makes possible a Family Support group with a trained facilitator where comfort can be found and experiences can be shared among patients and family members.
- A donation of $100 helps supply laboratory researchers with supplies and materials critical to carrying out their search for cures.
- A donation of $1,000 makes possible one-on-one conversations with health care specialists who provide patients with information about their disease, treatment options, and helps prepare them with questions for their health care team.
- Even a $10 donation can do a world of good, when joined with others, to accomplish all of the above and more!
Please make a donation to support my participation in the Light The Night Walk and help save lives. Be sure to check my Web site frequently to see my progress, and thanks for your support!
