When you Light The Night …

You are fueling research

Funds you raise for Light The Night propel blood cancer research that’s improving cancer care and saving lives.

You’re providing support

With your help, anyone facing a blood cancer can get the information and personal support they need—every step of the way.

You’re making a different cancer experience possible

By taking part in Light The Night, you’re bringing light, love, and hope to show those affected by blood cancers that they’re not alone.

A blood cancer diagnosis is more than the illness. It is a community of people first.

  • It is a person who will have to quit a job, stop school and pause plans for the future to overcome a grave illness.

  • It is a person who will have to care for a loved one day-after-day for weeks, months or even years.

  • It is a person who will find the best course of action to treat the illness, monitor the progress, or offer advice.

  • It is a person who will dedicate their career to finding new ways to treat the disease with fewer side effects.

  • It is a family that grieves a loved one lost to the disease.

The greatest lesson I learned from all that I have been through, is that life is something we should not take for granted, and that each day we are in state of wellness to get up and make an impact in someone’s life, it is important that we do so.

Growing up, I had a very normal life; a loving family, plenty of friends, and I was quite active in my school, and the community.

You know those bucket lists that people always talk about- I never had a list and I have no empty buckets. I’ve done all I wanted to do, and I have no regrets.
