Hello lovely souls 🙂
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada’s (LLSC) Light The Night Walk is the nation’s night to pay tribute and bring hope to all those affected by blood cancer. This fall, I will be joining thousands of people walking in twilight carrying illuminated lanterns… To benefit all 138,000 people affected by blood cancers in Canada. All those that will be diagnosed every 23 minutes, And those, who every 72 minutes, will die. I will be walking as a recent survivor for them, with them, and to benefit them.
I was diagnosed in February this year at 24 years old and it completely changed my world. It was a reminder that we are not invincible like a lot of us think we are and that it is important to help the ones in need as this disease (like many others) is ugly. I am one of the fortunate ones who make it out alive. This being said, it doesn’t mean this monster won’t try to take me down again in the future. It is because of people who care and want to help that surviving is even a possibility.
You can be part of the cure by kindly donating to my fundraising efforts. Thank you for supporting me and the thousands of Canadians living with a blood cancer. I know you are not doing this wanting something in return but I know the universe will pay you back.
