In Honour of Kirsten Andersen
Thanks for visiting my Light The Night Walk homepage. As a 4 year survivor of Hodgkin's Lymphoma, I know what it's like to go through chemo and radiation. Though these treatments were unimaginably tough, I owe my life to them. So that's why I am supporting this walk to find more cures.
My lovely friend and fellow Hodgkin's survivor, Kirsten Andersen. This year I'm walking in her honour... as I am honoured to have her in my life. We're all rooting for you, Kirsten! :)
This year I am walking especially to honour my talented and beautiful friend, Kirsten Andersen. I was blessed to meet her at a writer's group she organized for the Callanish Society.
Kirsten has a warm, creative & generous spirit that shines out despite her ongoing battle with Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Her courage and strength awe me. I admire and respect her beyond words. She is a true hero.
So this one is for you, Kirsten. I'll keep you in my heart as I walk. ;)
Please make a donation to support my Light The Night Walk and help save the lives of wonderful people like Kirsten. We need more treatment options for Hodgkin's Lymphoma! Be sure to check my Web site frequently to see my progress, and thanks for your support!
I love you, Kirsten. Keep on swimming.
*Thank you to anyone who donates even a couple dollars. It means so much. A special thank you to Dana Osborne who is walking with me! :) *
