Once again CMB is participating in Light the Night, a fundraising campaign for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, culminating in a walk on Boston Common on October 20th. Our participation began back in 2008, when our coworker, Catherine, was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. After two rounds of chemo, a stem cell transplant, and proton radiation therapy, I’m happy to report that she recently celebrated six years in remission!
The money raised is used to fund research for new therapies and treatments (including those that saved Catherine) and ensure patient access to treatments. Last year alone, LLS invested $67.2 million in blood cancer research.
Over the past 8 years, we’ve raised over $80K—not bad for a 65 person company! LTN is truly a company-wide endeavor, we host bake sales, BBQs, silent auctions, and a very competitive cornhole tournament. This year we've raised over $6K, and we're still going strong. We'd like to give a big thank you to all of our clients, partners, and friends who've donated!
If you’d like to join us in the fight against cancer, please donate here or meet us on Thursday October 20th at 5PM on the Boston Common.
