When my mom was diagnosed with Leukemia a few months ago, I was hit with a pretty helpless feeling. It’s been nagging at me ever since, and I’ve been trying to figure out a way to do something, but short of miraculously finding a cure for cancer, I’ve been stumped. But then, I found the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and discovered a way to do something with that helpless energy.
So, I’ve registered my happy ass for Light the Night on October 13th. The goal is to raise as much money as possible for the Leukemia and Lymphoma society, as well as bring awareness to this type of cancer. So far, my goal is $500, but if I make good progress in the coming months, I just might increase the goal.
Since my mom has Leukemia, I’ll walk with an illuminated red balloon (patients get white, family gets red, gold is reserved for the memory of a lost loved one) and share in something that’s pretty relevant to our lives right now.
My fundraising page is here. Check it out, will ya?
