Each year, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) hosts “Light the Night Walk” events in communities across the country. Teams of families, friends, co-workers and corporations come together to raise funds and bring help and hope to people battling blood cancers.
Earlier this month, the Westchester/Hudson Valley Chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society held their annual awards dinner to honor individuals, teams and sponsors who helped raise a whopping $850,000 for our local chapter. As a corporate sponsor of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Light the Night event, Houlihan Lawrence would like to congratulate the thousands of volunteers and supporters who participated in such a successful event!
Approximately every four minutes, one person in the United States is diagnosed with a blood cancer. Leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma are the most commonly known blood cancers, but there are a host of other diseases that are also blood cancers, all of which afflict individuals of any age. Chances are you know someone – a family member, friend, or colleague – who has been effected by a blood cancer and it is a cause that is near and dear to Houlihan Lawrence and its employees.
Sixty years ago, a diagnosis of blood cancer was fatal. Now, thanks to decades of research advanced by LLS and others, people are winning their battles against blood cancers. LLS have made a significant difference in patients’ lives and the mission continues until there’s a cure. The goal of the Light the Night Walk for the Westchester/Hudson Valley Chapter of LLS is to raise $1 million in 2013 and Houlihan Lawrence is proud to play a role in helping them achieve that goal. As a longtime sponsor, advocate, and friend, we are committed to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society as they fight the good fight to find a cure.
