Light the Night walks (Aired on October 17 & 18, 2015)
Leukemia, lymphoma, and myeloma care cancers of the blood cells. The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society funds research that has greatly reduced the death rate from these cancers, and the Society also provides education and support for patients as well as advocacy for better treatments and services. One way that you can help fund the Society and also increase awareness is to participate in one of the several Light the Light Walks in the Hudson Valley or Connecticut. Amanda Harley, a campaign assistant for the Society, visits RadioRotary to describe the walks and provide information about cancers of the blood. The walks, which take place at various locations around 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. in the fall, are only a mile or two, and provide a chance for friends, families, and others to act as a community while raising money for research.
