Celebrate The Life Of An Angel - Help Me Carry the Light of Hope
Welcome to my Light The Night Walk home page.
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 celebration of the life of Allie Scott, who was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia in May 2004, at the age of 5 months. Allie received over 50 blood transfusions, 2 rounds of chemotherapy, and a blood cord transplant. Allie fought for her life everyday with the love and support of her parents and many family members and friends by her side. Allie passed from this world on Monday, September 13th in the arms of her mother as she sang to her. We are so very lucky to have been touched by the life of this angel and I feel blessed to have the opportunity to help raise money for the Leukemia Society in Allie's name.
We need your support to help accelerate cures and hope for patients and their families all over the world. Although research is responsible for increasing survival rates for these diseases, the battle is far from over.
