Your support means a lot…to me and to thousands of others.
Thanks for visiting my Light The Night Walk homepage.
Team Gershon has been participating in the Light the Night Event for the past 3 years. We have raised the most money in the state for the Light the Night Event during our previous two fundraising campaigns. Many of you are aware of my own story and why I became involved with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. You can also read my blog at http://jongershon.blogspot.com
This year has been wonderful in terms of my CML treatment. It is because of donations to fundraisers such as this that I am able to be doing as well as I am. I expressed this same notion to our senators and congressmen in the spring.
Please help us raise a lot of money for this wonderful cause.
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.
2007 Light the Night
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.
But more research is critically needed:
- Every five minutes someone is diagnosed with blood cancer. Every 10 minutes, someone dies.
- Leukemia causes more deaths among children than any other cancer.
- Nearly 20,000 Americans died from lymphoma in 2007.
- The survival rate for myeloma is just 34 percent.
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!
