Leukemia & Lymphoma Light the Night:: Sponsored Post!

0

I am really excited to promote the “Light the Night” Walk for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. It is a cause that is near and dear to my heart as I have had a couple of family members personally affected by cancer & leukemia. What’s great about this walk is that the whole family can be involved and be supporters. It’s such a wonderful thing for adults and children alike to know that they are helping even if it’s in a small way for such a BIG cause!

The Light the Night walk honors blood cancer survivors, as well as those lost to the disease, and to shine light on finding cures and providing access to treatments for blood cancer patients.

One group that deserves our attention is children with cancer. Leukemia is the most common type of cancer in children and adolescents less than 20 years old. While extraordinary progress has been made in blood cancer treatments, the journey back to a healthy life can be a long one. For these kids, returning to school can mean additional challenges, including maintaining friendships and keeping up with schoolwork.

Here is how we can do it: 

This year Sylvan Learning is partnering with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society through Light the Night, with a commitment to raise $250,000 and to donate over 12,000 hours of free tutoring service in nearly 200 communities nationwide to help young blood cancer patients and their families with the transition back to academics. You can help them to achieve these goals!!!

  • There are nearly 200 Light the Night walk nationwide this fall. It’s easy to walk by joining a team!
  • Learn more about LLS and Sylvan are helping young cancer patients their patients manage.
  • Find a walk in your area and and join a Sylvan Learning walk team in supporting this great cause!

Since I have personally been through the devastation of walking through cancer with my family members and seeing them struggle, I can say that it is truly heartbreaking. They are so brave and go through so much trying to fight and stay strong! To know that there are people out there who are advocating on their behalf to find a cure is so wonderful.

I am going to “Light the Night” with my family- would you join us??? Let’s walk to the end of cancer and, at the same time, you can help get kids back into the swing of school, often while they are still undergoing treatment.
