Blogging for Blood Cancer

The first annual “Blogging for Blood Cancer” event will take place from August 11-18, 2008. This first time event will bring bloggers from across the United States together to raise awareness for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and its mission to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.

The event is being hosted by Goodies for Mom in conjunction with the Friends of Heroes (FOH) National Light The Night Team of which I am a proud part. We are asking (ok ,begging) that bloggers post on your blogs throughout the event about the importance of the LLS mission, share your personal stories of those you have come to know who have been affected by blood cancer, or share some of the stories you read here and on the FOH site during the week that have touched your hearts. Be sure to check out The Friends of Heroes blog and this post! You have a chance to win some prizes! I would be happy to win any prize--like the American Express gc!

Hi Doreen -

I work for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and write the Light The Night Blog. I wanted to thank you for joining Blogging for Blood Cancers. It's such an amazing realization to see how many people have taken a stand to help spread the word about the cause. Thanks so much!
