We lost our daughter Lauren to ALL at the age of 14 after a brief 7 week battle with the disease at SickKids Hospital. It changes you forever... almost like learning to live without a limb. We miss her and think about her every day.

When Lauren was receiving treatment at SickKids, a social worker told us about Light The Night and we were planning on doing the walk with Lauren to boost her spirits. Little did we know that we would be walking in her memory instead.

We have an incredibly supportive circle of friends and family who believe in this cause as much as we do. Thanks to their generosity and support we were able to reach the $5,000 fundraising milestone.

Blood cancer can affect anyone at any age. The chances are likely that someone in your social circle knows someone who has been touched by a blood cancer diagnosis. Light The Night is an incredibly inspiring event that raises money for groundbreaking research, that will hopefully help save more lives, by participating in Light The Night you are  helping to fund groundbreaking research.

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
