The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s annual Light The Night Walk will be held on Saturday, October 6 at Sunset Gower Studios in Hollywood (www.lightthenight.org/los) and across the nation this Fall. It’s a night to celebrate hope for blood cancer survivors of all ages and a night to remember those who’ve lost their battle.
Within this past year, the world indeed lost so many renowned individuals to leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, most notably: Andy Whitfield, Etta James, Geraldine Ferraro, and most recently, Nora Ephron, to name just a few. We welcome their friends, family and all of their fans to participate in any of the Light The Night Walk taking place throughout the country to pay tribute to their memory.
The first 3 steps of the Walk are simple: register yourself or a team of friends, family or colleagues; raise funds to support blood cancer research; and attend the Walk festivities which includes a private remembrance ceremony to honor the lives of loved ones lost to blood cancers. All the other steps of the Walk are inspirational… and an important reminder that together we have the power to impact advances in treatments and care for blood cancer patients.
