Bloggers stay hopeful with Light the Night

Walk with hope
and inspiration

Living with cancer is something we all hope we never face, but when the disease surfaces, it's time for solidarity.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society helps cancer victims by funding research into blood cancer, but it also helps patients learn about their disease and pay for medical bills. The society brightens the lives of those living with leukemia and lymphoma with Light the Night, a yearly walk to raise money and bring together those stricken by cancer, their families and their friends.

We found five bloggers who understand just how much Light the Night helps the cancer cause.

Finding inspiration in the face of cancer might seem like an uphill battle, but as Mama Kat's mom told her when she lost her second husband to cancer, you never know how you'll react to tragedy. Mama Kat worked through it and will be participating in her local Light the Night walk this September.
