FOREST PARK, QUEENS!!!!
We have formed a team to participate in this walk called the Kew Gardens Blog Team.
You can join the Kew Gardens Blog Team at the Light The Night Walk to help raise funds and awareness for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Joining and walking is free but our goal is to raise $500 as a group so when you join make a donation as well!

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) funds lifesaving research that has contributed to major advances in the treatment of blood cancers and treatments for other types of cancer, such as chemotherapy and stem cell transplants. These treatments have helped patients live better, longer lives. New targeted therapies that kill cancer cells without harming normal tissue are providing drugs and procedures that are improving quality of life.
- A donation of $25 provides patients and their loved ones with FREE booklets that contain up-to-date information on their disease and help them make informed decisions about their treatment options.
- A donation of $50 makes possible a Family Support group with a trained facilitator where comfort can be found and experiences can be shared among patients and family members.
- A donation of $100 helps supply laboratory researchers with supplies and materials critical to carrying out their search for cures.
- A donation of $1,000 makes possible one- on-one conversations with health care specialists who provide patients with information about their disease, treatment options, and helps prepare them with questions for their health care team.
Please make a donation to support our team's participation in the Light The Night Walk and help save lives. Be sure to check our team's Website frequently to see our team's progress, and thanks for your support!
