Join Me and Houston Methodist Hospital in Light the Night Walk: Fighting Blood Cancer

As most of you know who have read this blog before, I was diagnosed with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL) last year and have been participating in a clinical trial at The Methodist Hospital in Houston, TX since early this year.

I’ve talked about and shared a variety of information about this dreaded disease as well as my personal journey in combating it. Along the way, I’ve tried to share pertinent resources about the many different types of blood cancer with the hope that some of this info will come to the aid of those in need – especially those literally fighting for their lives.

Help us make some day today in eradicating all blood cancers.

This month we celebrate Blood Cancer Awareness Month, which leads us right into the annual Light the Night Walk on October 10 in Houston and October 18 in Montgomery County.

I’m proud to be joining up with Team Houston Methodist (naturally) that Saturday night at NRG Stadium to raise money in fighting all blood cancers. You might say I have more than just a vested interest in this.

It’s purely personal!

The good folks at the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society even made a special web page to aid us in fundraising. I hope you’ll take a peek and contribute something at Joe’s Page.  You can also donate at Team Methodist and see if you know anyone else on our team. While you’re there, feel free to join us in the Walk.

Whether or not you’re able to donate to or participate in our Walk, I thank you for reading this. Won’t you please join me in a special prayer that blood cancer will, indeed, become a thing of the past!

Thank you!!
