Every four minutes, someone new is diagnosed with blood cancer. Every 10 minutes, someone dies. An estimated 1,012,533 people in the US are living with, or are in remission from leukemia, lymphoma or myeloma. The need for blood cancer advocacy and awareness is critical.
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is dedicated to improving the quality of life of blood cancer patients and their families and finding a cure for these heartbreaking diseases. This fall, LLS will be hosting Light The Night Walk events to pay tribute and bring hope to people battling cancer. The Walk is open to all; it does not require a particular level of fitness. Participants walk in their neighborhoods and carry lighted balloons for survivors, supporters and in memory of loved ones lost.
There is an upcoming Light The Night Walk in your area. Liight The Night Walk events are held in neighborhoods across the country.
For more information, or to register for your local walk, call (877) LTN-WALK or visit www.lightthenight.org.
