Leukemia and Lymphoma Society
Earlier this year, my father passed away from complications of myelodysplastic syndrome after 20+ years of fighting cancer. As there are no means of preventing or early screening for most blood cancers, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society agenda is focused on finding cures. All donations received will go directly to the LLS to be put towards medical research related to blood cancers.

About the campaign
It's one of the darkest moments in your life.
The light and warmth we generate delivers hope in time of despair, community in place of loneliness and life-saving RESEARCH & SUPPORT for cancer patients and their families.
At Light The Night, it is our aim to bring light to the darkness of cancer through research and cures. Light The Night is a series of fundraising campaigns benefiting The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) funding of research to find blood cancer cures.
We bring hope instead of despair by working to ensure access to treatments for all blood cancer patients. We bring communities together to celebrate those who are fighting the disease and to honor those we have lost.
Despite our progress to date, blood cancer still kills people. But thanks to promising LLS funded research in the field and on the horizon, we have a real opportunity to change that outcome.
With continued support, the thousands of patients who don't respond to current treatments will have new and potentially better tolerated treatment options.
And we can ensure that patients get better access to life-saving treatments and therapies and quality of life.
With your help, we can make that happen not someday, but today.
