{semi} Wordless Wednesday- Light the Night 2011







For those of you that don't know, Joe is my dad, who was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia in October 2009.  He had a life saving stem cell transplant (also known as BMT or bone marrow transplant) from an unrelated donor in July 2010.  He is currently cancer free and doing well.  He IS a survivor!  

We also walked in honor of a co-worker of my husband who is currently undergoing chemotherapy for the treatment of another form of leukemia (Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia).  She is a breast cancer survivor as well.

We walk to raise awareness.  We walk to honor those who have battled or are currently battling cancer.  We walk to remember. 

(You can be the one to save a life, by registering to be a bone marrow donor at www.marrow.org!)
