"It shows we are all supportive and loving and caring and at the end of the day we have definitely felt that all year, the nine months we've been fighting this, we have felt it and it's awesome to feel it in this public environment," said Becki Woodbury, whose 10-year-old daughter is battling leukemia.

The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society says it's working to make cures happen by providing patient support services, advocating for lifesaving treatments and pioneering the most promising cancer research anywhere.
