This year’s Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Westchester/Lower Hudson Valley, Light The Night,® will take place on Saturday, November 3, beginning at 5 pm at Kingsland Point Park in Sleepy Hollow, NY.
Light The Night® is a fundraising campaign benefiting LLS and their funding of research to find blood cancer cures. Coming together for a common goal; friends, family and co-workers form fundraising walk teams. Millions of consumers also help by donating at retail outlets. Culminating in inspiration and memorable evening walks every fall, participants in 140 communities across North America join together carrying illuminated lanterns, white for survivors, red for supporters and gold in memory of loved ones lost to cancer, all to take steps to end cancer.
LLS is the world’s largest voluntary health agency dedicated to finding cures for leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma and other blood cancers. Through its efforts it has invested more than $1.2 billion in cutting-edge research to advance therapies. Thanks to research, survival rates for patients with many blood cancers have doubled, tripled and even quadrupled since the early 1960s. Yet, despite these advances, about one third of patients with blood cancer still do not survive even five years after their diagnosis.
