This year's Light the Night walk was held in Iowa City at Kinnick Stadium on October 17th. I volunteered as team captain for "Team York Walks for Rhonda." For those of you who don't know, Rhonda is my wonderful mother, mentor and friend. She was diagnosed with chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) in June 2008. The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society funds Brian Dunker, MD who lead the research for the medication that is helping my mom live with leukemia. What a GREAT honor to be a part of a fundraiser that raised over $129,300 for research to find cures for blood cancers!
