Light the Night Walk- Help Support Luekemia and Lymphoma

I don't normally post about anything but Homeschooling but I'd like to take just a moment for this!

I am participating in The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Light The Night Walk on October 23rd, and I would like to ask for your support. 
LLS is the single largest nonprofit contributor to blood cancer research – more than $750 million has been invested in life-saving science.

Critical treatment innovations have originated through blood cancer research – radiation, chemotherapy, stem cell transplantation, and new targeted therapies.  Nearly 50% of all FDA approved cancer drugs in the past decade were for blood cancer. Many are now being tested for other cancers and other illnesses.

Last year over 40,000 patients received financial assistance from LLS totaling over $6 million. And LLS provides information and support to patients and their caregivers all free. And to help patients during this time of crisis, LLS’s financial aid and co-pay programs are critically important.

Light The Night is a special night, celebrating and commemorating lives touched by cancer.
Your help will make a difference! Please consider making a donation to LLS on my behalf.  To join me in the Walk or to donate online, visit 

There is also a donate area in the sidebar of the blog.

Thank you for your support in the fight against blood cancer.
