Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
Sponsored by Providence Holy Cross Health Center
The Non-Profit Spotlight, hosted by Janice Murray , airs each Monday and Friday at 10AM on AM-1220 KHTS and is sponsored by Providence Holy Cross Health Center.
As the world's largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research, the Society is committed to providing support and guidance to patients and the health professionals who care for them. Their mission is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma and to improve the quality of life of patients and their families.
Nearly 1 million volunteers from all walks of life give generously of their time and talents. They provide professional guidance and help raise vitally needed funds. The Society's activities are directed and supervised by its national and chapter boards of trustees.
Mark your calendar for Sunday, October 19, 2008 for ‘Light the Night’ – taking place at Bridgeport Park. Light The Night Walk is the nation's night to pay tribute and bring hope to people battling cancer. Each year, teams of friends, families, co-workers and local businesses raise funds for cancer research. A stunning visual display of hope, walkers carry illuminated balloons - supporters carry red balloons, and cancer survivors carry white.
We want to thank the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society for being with us at the KHTS Community Resource Station.
