Help Me Light The Night With Hope
The Light The Night Walk is The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's nationwide evening walk to raise awareness and
funds to cure leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.
I'm participating in the Walk in honor of those who are battling these blood cancers, and in memory of those that have lost their fight. Your support will bring us closer to finding a cure, and will offer hope for patients and their families.
Although research is responsible for increasing survival rates for these diseases, the battle is far from over.
