Hematologic oncologists Danielle Brander, MD, and Joseph Moore, MD, will lead the way for Team Duke Cancer Center Durham at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s 2019 Light the Night walk.
According to The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, approximately every three minutes one person in the United States is diagnosed with a blood cancer. An estimated combined total of 176,200 people in the U.S. are expected to be diagnosed with leukemia, lymphoma or myeloma in 2019, and new cases of leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma are expected to account for 10% of the estimated 1,762,450 new cancer cases diagnosed in the U.S. in 2019.
More than 5,000 people step out each year for the Light The Night walk. This year’s walk will take place Saturday, Nov. 2, at the Booth Amphitheatre in Cary, North Carolina.
Duke Cancer Institute will sponsor a Glam Station featuring spa-inspired activities hosted by Duke Cancer Institute's Patient Support Program. Highlights include complimentary makeup and salon services, scarf tying, fairy hair and face painting for kids. The Glam Station will also feature a photo booth.
Every participant who joins Team Duke Cancer Center Durham and pledges $25 to his or her own fundraising efforts will receive a pair of light-up Duke Blue Devil horns to wear at the walk (pick-up at Glam Station at the event).
