Hey everyone –
Jamie here. But you knew that. I mean, my name is on the website. Anyway, it’s that time of year again. It’s…
LIGHT THE NIGHT!!!!
What’s so awesome about Light the Night? Let me break it down for you.
- It’s a yearly event where a ton of people walk in honor of their loved ones, friends and family who have been impacted by blood cancers like Leukemia and Lymphoma. We walk in honor of those who have survived, and in memory of those we’ve lost.
- Last year, I was in the middle of my own battle with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma while my friends and family walked in my honor. Because I was neutropenic, I wasn’t able to attend. But this year I’m SUPER pumped to go and join in on such a special event.
- Every year, my friend Andrea goes out of her way to organize a great group event and encourages everyone (even dogs!) to come out and walk with our team.
- This year, the team is aptly named, “#KissCancerGoodbye” and I can’t wait to link arms with some other cancer survivors and know what it really means to do just that!
So, with all of that said, I encourage you all to come walk with our team, or consider giving a small donation to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
Here is the fundraising page
(and also where you can join the team)
And here are the details for the event:

p.s. I’ll be writing some other posts very soon. I promise!
