I am currently living with non-Hodgkins Lymphoma and it has changed my perspective on family and my day to day life. I was inspired to join Light The Night because I wanted to feel like I was helping in an area that has dramatically changed my life.

I was able to reach the $5,000 fundraising milestone by simply asking. As a team, we have great friends and family that are very generous.

Light The Night is an event to highlight blood cancers and to highlight how far I have come. All Canadians should support the blood cancer community because blood cancer is more common than we realize and so many of us are affected by blood cancers in one way or another. And I truly believe it is a cancer that we can find a cure for.

Do you have a story to tell?

As a supporter, in memory, or as a survivor… share with others why you are helping end blood cancers by participating in a Light the Night Walk
