Last fall, after helping fundraise from a distance for several years, I joined my family in person for the first time, walking in the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Light the Night Walk. It's the LLS's annual fundraising walk to pay tribute and bring hope to people battling cancer, and hundreds of thousands of participants in events around the country raise funds for lifesaving research and patient services. That mission is important to my family and me; as you may already know, my mother was diagnosed with leukemia several years ago, and she's healthy today thanks to knowledge and treatments developed with LLS funding -- treatments developed after she was diagnosed.
Tomorrow night, I'm doing my own walk here in Central New York, and I've already raised several hundred dollars. I'd love it if you'd take a moment to add your own donation. Even a few dollars would be welcome; after being laid off in January, I, of all people, realize times are tight for many of us.
