BENEFITING: The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Light The Night Walk funds lifesaving research and support for people battling cancer. We started Team Emmy over 7 years.My family has been on our own personal journey with my mom's leukemia which was diagnosed 11 years ago this month. In 2005 we lost that particular battle but we continue to fight the war.
In 2013 there are 14 clinical trials for blood cancers in development worldwide. 4 of them are being conducted right here in Colorado...funded completely by the Light the Night!!!
Three years ago, someone died every 4 minutes from blood cancer. Today that number is every 10 minutes. And while 6 minutes might not seem much, for those of us who've lost someone 6 minutes can seem a lifetime.
Blood Cancers are the third leading cause of ALL cancer deaths
We work and walk and fundraise everyday so that someday no one will have to live without their parent or child or sibling or friend because of blood cancers. Please Help!
