I've received another email today from The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Advocates Network about a major victory for leukemia and blood cancer education funding (see below). Again, I encourage everyone affected by leukemia or other blood cancers to become become a member of the LLS Advocates Network:
How do you plan on making the most out of September being Leukemia Awareness Month? I'm interested in hearing from you, so please add your comments below.
I'm going to participate in my first Light The Night event with my local Leukemia & Lymphoma Society chapter. It's with a heavy heart, because my mom was going to walk with me carrying her white survivor balloon. It seems fate had other plans for her, so I will carry a gold balloon in her place knowing that she still walks beside me just not the way we had planned.
I'm about to go a bit off topic, which I promise not to do often, but it relates to leukemia awareness in a round about way...

I received this email (see below) recently and I'd like to share it with you in case you're not an LLS Advocates Network Member. By the way I strongly encourage you to become one if you're serious about Leukemia Awareness. I've sent in my story, please send in your, too.
