This year, me and my husband decided to support LLS with their annual Light the Night Walk.

With chapters throughout Canada and the United States, LLS is the world’s largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research, education and patient services.
Our mission is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and to improve the quality of life of patients and their families.
In 2012, Light The Night was able to raise $50 million for blood cancer research in North America.
Across Canada in 2013 The Light The Night walks raised over five million dollars. Vancouver hosted its 9th Walk in 2013 and raised over $603,000.
This is not just a walk, it’s a chance to come together and support one another, complete with music, food and family fun. Everyone and anyone can join us to help take steps to cure cancer.
Help us make a difference.
As of today, we reached the $100- $499 goal. We hope we will get more support as the event gets closer.
Why We Walk
