I Light the Night

Happy Monday! I hope yous had an awesome weekend!

Today's #Blogtember post is about analyzing your results of a personality test. I for one, think personality tests are a crock of crap. My answers for yes or no questions depend on how I'm feeling about that subject in that moment. My "personality" based on that moment will change the very next time I take the test. To me, it is bullshiz. I know my personality, I don't need to see it on paper.

That being said, I wanna talk about something my Introverted, Sensing, Feeling, Judging (ISFJ) personality would want me to mention. "ISFJs are characterized above all by their desire to serve others, their 'need to be needed.'"

Light the Night
In October, my family and I will be participating in the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Light the Night Walk in honor of my Aunt Theresa. My aunt was diagnosed with Ph+ CML (Chronic Myeloid Leukemia) in 2008. She will be on medication to regulate her chromosome alignment for the rest of her life. The medication makes her nauseated every day and she still manages to work full-time and raise her two kids with my Uncle Tom. She is one of the strongest women I'll ever know.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) raises money for programs that fund treatments that can manage a person's condition with a daily pill, therapies that seek out cancer cells and kill them, and the use of a patient's own immune system to eradicate cancer.

I'm hoping to raise awareness and funds to kick the cancer that affects 35,726 people in the United States. About 14,590 will be diagnosed with CML in 2013. Please consider donating to support this awesome charity (tax write-off...whoop!).

The Light the Night Walk for the LLS is a truly beautiful and inspiring event. The event is at twilight and walkers receive light up balloons. It's awesome for people with Leukemia and Lymphoma to look to the parkway and see the lights of everyone who walks in support of them and it shows how many people want to make a difference.



Look how much fun it is saving lives!
Thanks!

  2. That's an awesome charity. We do something like that with the Relay for Life and I remember participating and feeling so connected. Other people wanting to help others and do something good? Makes me feel like a good human :)

    Good luck with your charity!
