Tonight my family and I are going to the Target Center in Minneapolis to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Light the Night Walk. The walk celebrates survivors and commemorates loved ones lost to cancer. My niece Katie, a leukemia survivor, is coming with us. She was diagnosed when she was nine, and fought a hard battle, but is doing well. We will remember my aunt Lois, who died of lymphoma about ten years ago.
The walk is also a fundraiser to support cancer research and services for patients and their families. We’ll walk 2-3 miles in and around Target Field. Rod Carew and Tina Fey will be there as well as honorary supporters. If you would like to help support cancer research, let me know and I can funnel the money to the right people.
