Light The Night brings communities across Canada together for one magical evening to share stories, remember loved ones lost and pay tribute to our heroes, bringing light, love and hope to dispel the darkness of blood cancers.
Nine years ago, Lauren Burry, a wonderful, fourteen-year-old, young lady was taken from her family. Leukemia is cancer of the body's blood-forming tissues, including the bone marrow and the lymphatic system. Her parents are now retired teachers and long-time friends of mine. I walk in memory of Lauren so that other families do not have to suffer such a loss.
My goal is to raise $1000, for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I know that there are many worthwhile, needy charities out there. If you are able, please give what you can. Thank you.
