Team WE CARE Light the Night

Members,

The Nassau County Bar Association is proud to support The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) mission to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.

Our organization is excited to announce that we have formed a Light The Night fundraising team and are raising money to support LLS. Our fundraising efforts will culminate at the walk on October 20, 2018 at Eisenhower Park.

All members are invited to join the team, raise funds and attend this fun family event. Participating in the Walk is a great way to create camaraderie within our organization, and will have a positive impact on our image in the communities we serve.

Our goal is to have many of you as walkers on our team—this includes members, their families and friends—and to raise $5,000.

Many of us have been touched by a cancer diagnosis and will support with our own personal connections in mind.

Meet Violet Oderwald and Brandon Bloom, Light The Night’s 2018 Honored Heroes. Honored Heroes are local children who are living with, or have survived, a blood cancer. Honored Heroes share their story to inspire volunteers, encourage them to support The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s mission, and help create a much needed awareness. LLS recognizes and honors them as heroes for their courageous fight against blood cancer!

Money raised through Light The Night allows The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to fund treatments for patients who are suffering from all forms of blood cancers. With the investment of more than $1.2 billion in research since they started in 1949, LLS is a leader in advancing breakthroughs in immunotherapy, genomics and personalized medicine.

The power of your donations is tangible. Last year alone, there were 18 new treatments approved by the FDA for blood cancer patients; LLS supported 15 of them.

Did you know, the impact of LLS supported research goes beyond blood cancers? Blood cells are easier to access and study than cancer cells in solid tumors. That’s why many lifesaving cancer discoveries – including chemotherapy and many immunotherapies – started in blood cancer. More than 65 years of fighting blood cancers has led LLS to a game changing belief—the cures for cancer are in our blood.
