My family and I (Jay, Jacob and Maeci) will be participating in The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Light The Night Walk at Victory Field, October 16, 2010, and we would like to ask for your support.
As you may know, our daughter Maeci was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma on April 19, 2010. While this was a complete shock, her Faith in God brought her through this. She endured many scary days and many overnight stays at Riley Hospital for Children but she continued to smile and believe. She told me in the very beginning that God would take care of her and "God's Got It" became our family motto. With Gods healing touch, Maeci's scans were clear on August 2nd, she had a complete response to chemo according to her Oncologist. We are now finishing up the last of her treatment plan and they will continue to monitor her. Maeci is truly a blessing to our family and has touched and inspired the lives of others with her smiling face!
Light The Night is a nationwide evening walk that raises funds for cutting-edge cancer research and innovative programs for patients and their families. The LLS mission is: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.
It’s a special night, celebrating and commemorating lives touched by cancer. Each Walker who raises $100 or more becomes a Champion For Cures and gets to carry a special illuminated balloon – white for survivors, red for supporters and gold for those who have lost a loved one to blood cancer. Light The Night is a magical event that someday will ensure that blood cancers are eliminated.
Your help will make a difference! Please consider joining my team and walking with Maeci and/or making a donation to help me become a Champion For Cures. I will also be placing an order for t-shirts which will say "Maeci Moo & Crew" for $10.00 each. Please let me know soon if you want a t-shirt. I will be placing the order soon. (You do not have to order a t-shirt to be on my team)
