Light the Night 2013 Campaign
I bet we all can agree that when a cure for Cancer is found there will be lots of celebrations world wide! I remember in high school my teacher said in only a couple years you will know someone who has or had cancer, sadly I never thought it would be my mother. Whats worse is being able to count more and more people I know who have battled this disease!
If you have followed my blog you have seen a post here or there especially in the month of October hearing about the loss of my mother due to her battle with leukemia.
Ten years may have passed since her going home to Jesus party but the heart ache still is present. This year my family is helping to make a difference. We have formed team Bette Boop, thanks to my sister who started this team last year! I am so proud of her efforts last year that it made me so eager to jump on board the team and get raising funds for Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
For more then 60 years, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society has been solely focused on people with blood cancers.
I want to keep my readers informed on my journey through fundraising and the emotional evening of the walk in September. Please keep me in your prayers as I fund-raise and when I walk in the Light the Night Evening. Please also keep praying for the scientists working on cures and for the current families going through this hardship.
