Team Violet is participating in Light The Night Halifax on October 26 to fight blood cancers.

We’re proud to support the blood cancer community through Light The Night.

Blood cancers are the fifth most common form of cancer in Canada, affecting more than 155,000 Canadians—our family members, our friends and neighbours, our colleagues, ourselves. But together, we can shine a light toward a future without blood cancers.

Please consider making a donation today. Thank you for your support!

Light The Night Halifax

Team Violet

Back in 2016, 2 weeks before Christmas, Lizz’s bestfriend Kat had called her with devastating news about her first born, Violet Mcinnis. She was only 10 months old when she was diagnosed with ALL (acute lymphoblastic leukemia). Days before she was taken to the emergency room, Violet was experiencing flu-like symptoms, had purple dots and bruising covering her body, black circles under her eyes and had a rock hard belly.

Violet had spent her first Christmas, took her first steps, and even celebrated her first birthday at the IWK. She was hospitalized for 7 months, undergoing harsh chemotherapy, endless blood transfusions and platelets, and fighting to regain her white blood cells.

Today, she is in grade 2 and has also celebrated 7 years in remission! All thanks to you and the community around you to help end blood cancers.

However, other kids like Violet are not so lucky to have the same outcome and I will fund new medical research and advocate for those other children dealing with a blood cancer through Light the Night!

The only way miracles like Violet can happen is with your help! 

Donate today, and join TEAM VIOLET at Light the Night at Pier 21 on October 26th, 2024 and raise your lantern in support, remembering a loved one, or to show your strength as a survivor. Thank you for your ongoing support.
