Light the Night Boise took place virtually on Thursday, Oct. 22, at 7 p.m. During the fundraiser, The Leukemia Lymphoma Society brought light to the darkness of cancer by honoring and remembering those touched by cancer and by rallying as a community in support of LLS’s mission.

Leukemia is the leading disease killer of children under 15. Approximately every three minutes someone in the U.S. is diagnosed with a blood cancer. And every 10 minutes, someone dies of blood-related cancer. There are 823,349 Americans presently living with leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease, or myeloma.

In 2019, LLS helped advance 12 of 14 approved blood cancer therapies. Light the Night raises critical funds to support these advances and to provide patient support and advocacy for patients.

During the virtual event, family, friends, and co-workers met virtually to celebrate, honor, and remember those touched by cancer.  Registration is free, but participants are encouraged to raise funds to support the mission.
