Fox Valley Hematology & Oncology (FVHO), northeast Wisconsin’s cancer care specialists, will be the 2016 presenting sponsor of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Light The Night Walk on Friday, Oct. 14, 2016 at Neuroscience Group Field at Fox Cities Stadium.
LLS is the world’s largest health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research. Its annual Light The Night Walk brings in nearly one million participants through more than 155 events throughout the United States. The Light The Night Walk brings hope and inspiration to those fighting and supporting blood cancer through the symbolic lighting of lanterns to bring light to the darkness of cancer.
“We feel it is important to find ways to uplift those affected by cancer,” Dr. William C. Guenther, founding physician of FVHO, said. “LLS is an amazing organization that provides many research dollars toward its goal to cure leukemia, lymphoma and all other blood disorders. FVHO is proud to be the presenting sponsor for an event that not only benefits our own patients, but also blood disorder patients across the world.”
In addition to FVHO’s presenting sponsorship, Dr. Karen Gremminger, a hematologist and oncologist at FVHO’s Oshkosh clinic, will be the Light The Night Walk Corporate Honorary Chair.
For the 2016 event, Neuroscience Group Field at Fox Cities Stadium will transform into a beacon of hope as participants illuminate their lanterns and begin their walk. For more information on how to start a team, join a team or register to walk as an individual, visit www.lightthenight.org/wi
