Info
Join me in bringing light to the darkness of cancer by donating towards my fundraising efforts in support of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Light The Night.

In our lives we all step up because it is the right thing to do, but sometimes things end up hitting home more than we know. I took an active role as a Team Leader when my company needed someone to step up and just a few months later the universe showed me how important that step was when my dad was told that due to another illness, he would be living with a high risk of developing lymphoma. Since then, I have also lost a dear friend and coworker to a blood borne cancer. So while I started with a red lantern to show support, these days I walk with a gold lantern in remembrance.

I am honored to have been recognized as an Emerging Leader for LLS!? I do believe that the cure for cancer is in our blood and I want to do my part to help find it!...

Money raised through Light The Night allows The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) to fund treatments for patients who are suffering from all forms of blood cancers. In 2019, LLS helped advance 12 of 14 approved blood cancer therapies.?

Help defeat the darkness of cancer. Please make a donation today to continue to help patients and their families across the country!

Bringen Sie mit mir Licht in die Dunkelheit des Krebses, indem Sie für meine Spendenbemühungen zur Unterstützung der Leukämie & Lymphoma Society 's Light The Night spenden.

In unserem Leben treten wir alle auf, weil es das Richtige ist, aber manchmal kommen die Dinge am Ende mehr nach Hause, als wir wissen. Ich habe eine aktive Rolle als Teamleiter übernommen, als mein Unternehmen jemanden brauchte, der aufsteigt, und nur wenige Monate später zeigte mir das Universum, wie wichtig dieser Schritt war, als meinem Vater sagte, dass er aufgrund einer anderen Krankheit mit einem hohen Niveau leben würde. Risiko, ein Lymphom zu entwickeln. Seitdem habe ich auch einen lieben Freund und Arbeitskollegen an einen Blutkrebs verloren. Während ich also mit einer roten Laterne angefangen habe, um Unterstützung zu zeigen, gehe ich heutzutage mit einer goldenen Laterne in Erinnerung.

Ich fühle mich geehrt, als aufstrebender Führer für LLS anerkannt zu werden!? ...Ich glaube, dass die Heilung gegen Krebs in unserem Blut liegt und ich möchte meinen Teil dazu beitragen, ihn zu finden!

Geld, das durch Light The Night gesammelt wurde, ermöglicht es der Leukämie & Lymphoma Society (LLS), Behandlungen für Patienten zu finanzieren, die unter allen Arten von Blutkrebs leiden. 2019 half LLS, 12 von 14 zugelassenen Blutkrebs-Therapien voranzutreiben.?

Helfen Sie, die Dunkelheit des Krebses zu besiegen. Bitte spenden Sie heute, um Patienten und ihren Familien im ganzen Land weiterhin zu helfen!

Emmalee Morris fühlt sich hoffnungsvoll.

We are so close! The walk is tomorrow night and we are only $112 away from $11,000!

I cannot image going into the hospital not knowing what is wrong to then hear the words you have cancer. I spent enough time in the hospital last week having my appendix removed and then having complications. It is scary, even when you know that you have something "routine" and "an easy fix". I am the poster child for easy fixes ending up being not so easy... whether it is something at m...y house or my own body, things with me are normally easier said then done.

I have been lucky so far. There has always been a cure for my health problems, but my life has been touched so many times by friends and family members with cancer. There are so many people battle against their diagnosis. LLS entered my work life before the high risk of developing Lymphoma touched way too close to home with my dad. They have a saying - "the cure for cancer is in our blood". I honestly believe that. Knowing how the body works, I believe that finding a cure for blood cancer will in fact be the key to curing all forms of cancer. There are already treatments that were pioneered for blood cancers that are being used to fight other forms of cancer today.

So here is my request - if you can give $5 in honor or in memory of someone in your life that has battled cancer of any kind, please make that donation today! If you are in a place where you could potentially give more, that would be amazing! But please, let today be the day that you donate! Let us know who it is that you are honoring and what type of cancer they are battling (or have battled). We are all surrounded by warriors and it is time to honor their fight, so hopefully the next person that hears those 3 dreaded words, "you have cancer" can have their sentence end with "but we have a cure"!
