Seeing that it is Blood Cancer Awareness Month and we are celebrating survivorship, it seems fitting that we take a moment to officially announce our 2012 Light The Night Honored Heroes. These incredible individuals are the “faces” of our North Bay (10/6), San Francisco (10/18) and East Bay (10/27) Light The Night Walks. All three are blood cancer survivors and I invite you to take a moment today to read their full stories on the Light The Night Walk website. In the meantime, here’s a little bit about these superstars who are inspiring our community to raise funds and unite behind one mission – creating a world without blood cancer – this October.
