**I am promoting this post in partnership with Light the Night. All opinions are my own.**
I, personally, have not been affected by childhood cancer. Nor have I as an adult, personally. However, my Uncle recently passed of stomach cancer, I have two neighbors battling breast cancer and another neighbors mother who is battling pancreatic cancer. The fight is real. The people are real. The support is needed more than ever. Especially for the smallest victims. Join Me to Help Light The Night For Kids with Cancer!
Let’s all walk to the end of cancer and, at the same time, you can help kids get back into the swing of school, often while they are still undergoing treatment.
This fall, let’s walk to the end of cancer by joining The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Light The Night Walk fundraising campaign, which brings together families and communities to honor blood cancer survivors, as well as those lost to the diseases, and to shine a light on finding cures and providing access to treatments for blood cancer patients.
Leukemia is the most common cancer in children and adolescents less than 20 years old. While extraordinary progress has been made in blood cancer treatments, the journey back to a healthy life can be a long one. For these kids, returning to school means additional challenges, including maintaining friendships to keeping up with schoolwork.
We NEED to keep smiles like this shining every day!
Here’s how we can do it:
This year, Sylvan Learning is partnering with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society through Light The Night, with a commitment to raise $250,000 and to donate more than 12,000 hours of free tutoring services in nearly 200 communities nationwide to help young blood cancer patients and their families with the transition back into academics. You can help them to achieve these goals:
There are nearly 200 Light the Night walks nationwide this fall. It’s easy to walk by registering and joining a team.
