for funding clinical trials and research in the fight against blood cancers.

At 17 years old, I was diagnosed with high-risk, flt 3 positive, acute myeloid leukemia (AML). This diagnosis flipped my life upside-down. I went from dreaming about all of the fun things I would do in the last half of my senior year to dreaming about just sleeping in my own bed again, from competing in dance competitions to competing for my life every day. What transpired over the next two years included two bone marrow transplants, more than 200 days inpatient at two different hospitals, 34 days in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU)—sedated, intubated, and on a ventilator, 20+ rounds of intense chemotherapy, and many other treatments too numerous to mention. Without the research that was funded by LLS, none of these treatments would be possible and I would not be here today.   I'm asking that you please consider supporting LLS in any way that you are able. Money raised through Light The Night allows LLS to fund treatments for patients who are suffering from all forms of blood cancers. The impact of LLS supported research goes beyond blood cancers. The discoveries made in blood cancer research have led to break through treatments for many types of cancers and other serious diseases.  I wouldn't wish what I have been through on anyone. Together, we can help defeat the darkness of cancer to eventually find a cure. Please make a donation today to continue to help people like me and those who receive a similar life-threatening diagnosis!
