  • Why LLS

    When you or someone you love hears the words “you have cancer,” it’s one of the darkest moments in your life. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Light The Night campaign brings light to the darkness of a cancer diagnosis through its mission to end blood cancers. Light The Night is a series of fundraising campaigns benefiting LLS’s funding of research to find blood cancer cures. Friends, families and co-workers gather together to celebrate, honor or remember those touched by cancer. Walk participants carry illuminated lanterns – white in honor of survivors and the power of research, red in support of patients and finding cures, and gold in remembrance of those who have been lost.
