Ok, alliteration doesn't always work
Thanks for considering a donation to 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.
After my own battle with Hodgkin's lymphoma (I'm on the road to remission, and hopefully will know for sure this week), I've decided it's important to do my own small part to help the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Although Hodgkin's is one of the most curable cancers in the family of blood cancers, many are not so lucky. Thousands die each year from leukemia and lymphoma, which can be particularly tricky cancers to diagnose because of the way in which they manifest themselves. I'm raising money not just to help the fight for the cure, but also to help the society expand their resources for patients and their families. Half of the battle is in finding cancer early, so we should do all we can to promote awareness and early detection. Also, although we have come a long way in battling cancer, the treatments are often very trying, and patients need support and education to deal with both the immediate and long-term effects of treatment, whether it be radiation, chemotherapy, or surgery.
Even just a small donation can help make a difference. We can never know if we'll be able to find a cure, but we should always work towards that goal, and in the meantime, do as much as we can to ensure that cancer takes as few lives as possible by being proactive and to make sure that patients have the resources they need to survive what can be a grueling treatment regimen.
