This is a sponsored post on behalf of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
This fall, let’s walk to the end of cancer by joining The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Light The Night Walk fundraising campaign, which brings together families and communities to honor blood cancer survivors, as well as those lost to the diseases, and to shine a light on finding cures and providing access to treatments for blood cancer patients.
One group that deserves our attention is children with cancer. Leukemia is the most common cancer in children and adolescents less than 20 years old. While extraordinary progress has been made in blood cancer treatments, the journey back to a healthy life can be a long one. For these kids, returning to school means additional challenges, including maintaining friendships to keeping up with schoolwork.
Here’s how we can do it:
This year, Sylvan Learning is partnering with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society through Light The Night, with a commitment to raise $250,000 and to donate more than 12,000 hours of free tutoring services in nearly 200 communities nationwide to help young blood cancer patients and their families with the transition back into academics. You can help them to achieve these goals:
There are nearly 200 Light the Night walks nationwide this fall. It’s easy to walk by registering and joining a team.

Find a walk in your area, and join a Sylvan Learning walk team in supporting this great cause.
As a cancer survivor myself, this is very near and dear to my heart. I hate every time I hear that one more person has some sort of cancer. We need to do everything that we can to eradicate it NOW!! I’m going to join Light the Night with my family. Won’t you join us? Let’s all walk to the end of cancer and, at the same time, you can help kids get back into the swing of school, often while they are still undergoing treatment.
