Join us once again in supporting the Light the Night Walk

Whitney was working hard raising money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Societies Light the Night event when she lost her battle against Leukemia.

A few days before the event in 2014 she started feeling pretty sick and we had to make an emergency trip back to the cancer clinic and then on to the hospital. Her liver finally had enough of the treatments and was shutting down. She was so disappointed that she couldn't attend the event, even more so than the fact that she was dying. 

She did get to see the video and pictures below of the event that night.

That was the last night she would ever talk to us.

A comment was made by one of the doctors near the end that he was sorry, but the science isn't good for her type of leukemia. 

Bottom line is that more research is desperately needed to find a cure! The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society is funding research specifically for blood cancers and relies on donations to accomplish this. It's up to you and me, we have to fund this research!!!

My wish for the world is that no other parent has to endure the pain and suffering of watching their child's life shortened by leukemia.

Let's keep the fight alive!
