We thank you for your generosity and commitment to your community, every penny raised goes to an amazing cause that helps families deal with the struggle of blood cancers. Here's some info on LLS:

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is the world’s largest voluntary health organization dedicated to fighting blood cancers. LLS was established 70 years ago by a family for families. LLS has played a pivotal role in 41 of the last 47 FDA approved treatments for cancer. LLS is taking on childhood cancer with its Children’s Initiative, a $50Million multi-year endeavor.

This organization is very special to our family as we lost our beautiful nephew Carson to Leukemia on May 18, 2016. We are holding this event to celebrate Carson's life and help raise funds to those going thru similar struggles. Here's Carson's touching story as told by his proud parents:

Thank you for taking the time to support Carson, our family and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. As many of you know, we took Carson to urgent care on May 15th, 2016 to see why after two rounds of antibiotics, his strep throat would not go away. After two blood draws at urgent care, we were sent to St. Rose ER for 3 more blood draws. It was there that we received the devastating news that Carson most likely had leukemia. Carson’s initial white blood cell count was 400,000. Due to his dangerously high potassium levels, he was rushed to Sunrise Children’s Hospital where he would have ports placed and begin dialysis immediately. Carson was placed under anesthesia for the port placement and would never wake up again. On May 16th, Carson was diagnosed with T-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.
We spent the next 3 days watching our 6 year old boy’s body slowly shut down. He experienced breathing trouble, kidney problems and heart arrhythmias. At 3:30am on Wednesday May 18th his heart stopped twice and the doctors were able to revive him. At 2:58pm, after doctors tried everything humanly possible to save him, we held our little boy as he quietly went to heaven.
Carson was a shining light with a heart of gold. He never met a stranger and made friends easily. He was outgoing, funny, smart, kind, artistic, fearless and happy. He loved his stuffed Tiggers, dinosaurs, dancing, drawing, baseball, motorcycles, monster trucks, his little brother and sister and his friends. He had a zest for life that was contagious and refreshing. It was impossible to be in a bad mood around him.
The Light the Night Walk is a way for us to honor Carson, by coming together to raise money and awareness for early childhood detection research. Carson showed no signs of illness prior to getting strep throat on May 4th, which is why we feel early detection research is so important. We will continue to keep Carson’s memory alive by raising money for childhood and blood cancer research. We are so thankful for all of the wonderful people in our lives who have supported us and carried us through this storm. ------Marc and Aubrey Arreola

Thank you for opening your hearts and making a difference, now let's get out there and have a great time and honor those who are no longer here or dealing with the burden of cancer.
