The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Light The Night is back in person this year! Anne Bradley of LLS joins us today to talk about the many ways to get involved. The event will be September 30th in Hart Plaza (with a virtual component for those who are more comfortable). Anne walks us through the return of this amazing event.
All of us know someone touched by cancer. Thanks to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's work, blood cancer survival rates have gone from 3% in the 1960's to between 80 and 90 percent today. Also, LLS has been involved in funding 40% of drugs in these areas. Obviously, to continue this work, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society needs to raise money.
Anne tells us about all the different ways to raise money for Light The Night, including challenges for executives and young professionals. She also mentions some great perks for the winners of these competitions - you'll want to hear this.
We also spend some time discussing resources provided by LLS - Andrea has participated in webinars for patients and supporters. We preview more to come.
Finally, we get to know Anne, a true Renaissance woman. In addition to her fundraising work, she's a vocalist for a punk rock band, a gardener, and a fitness instructor.
