New Jersey Young Professionals

Get out. Make friends. Meet people in NJ.

Light The Night Walk is The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's evening walk and fundraising event. It is the nation's night to pay tribute and bring hope to thousands of people
battling blood cancers and to commemorate loved ones lost.

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. New targeted therapies that kill cancer cells without
harming normal tissue are providing drugs and procedures that are
improving quality of life.

In fact, in 2009 alone, LLS researchers were conducting more than 90 clinical trials, a critical step in the development of new treatments and cures
that will help patients live better, longer lives.

  • 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.

We are walking in memory of my mom, Lucinda Dingman, who succumbed to Leukemia on Feb 21, 2009. Please join us in the fight against this
horrible illness so others will not have to suffer the way she did.


Please join us on Oct 9 at Riverfront Park in Red Bank to support this great cause.  If you would like to walk with us or make a donation (even a small donation helps!) please visit:
