A Powerful Partnership: Enmarket and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Fight Blood Cancer Together
(SAVANNAH, GA) For the 9th year, locally owned Enmarket (https://enmarket.com/)
Light The Night is a series of fundraising campaigns benefiting LLS and its funding of research to find blood cancer cures. Coming together for a common goal, friends, family and co-workers form fundraising walk teams and gather together to celebrate and honor or remember those touched by cancer. Millions of consumers also help by donating at retail outlets. Culminating in inspiration and memorable evening walks every fall, participants in 140 communities across North America join together carrying illuminated lanterns to take steps to end cancer – white for survivors, red for supporters and gold in memory of loved ones lost to cancer.
"We are so grateful to Enmarket and their employees who are relentless in their support of LLS and our mission to find better, safer cures for blood cancers," said Amanda Yancey, LLS Georgia – South Carolina Executive Director. "At Light The Night, we aim to bring light to the darkness of cancer through research and cures. We are taking steps to end cancer and we won't stop until we live in a world without blood cancer."
The funds raised through Light The Night are used for:
Since its founding in 1949, LLS has invested more than $1.3 billion in cutting-edge blood cancer research worldwide, and its support has been instrumental in the development of nearly every breakthrough in blood cancer treatment. To address the unique concerns of blood cancer patients throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, LLS has amplified its longstanding efforts to provide free information and support to blood cancer patients and their families, while also advocating for policies that will protect patients.
