I have been involved with Light The Night for over two years now and am currently living with a blood cancer.
During my time with blood cancer I have been so grateful to those around me who have been so supportive and humbled by the wonderful care of my medical team.
I was inspired to participate in Light The Night through the wonderful programs and research that the LLSC is doing! And the help they offered me personally. This year I was able to reach the $5,000 fundraising milestone by reaching out to friends and family through social media and personal emails.
To me Light The Night means the blood cancer community coming together to celebrate successes and to mourn the loss of so many. Blood cancer is so difficult for so many and those with blood cancers need the personal support and the hope that research findings bring.
