Editor:

On Nov. 11, our Moonlit Mission Team once again took part in the Light the Night Walk which raises funds for the life-saving medical research and patient services provided by The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS).

I sincerely thank the dedicated members of our Team as well as the many generous Harford County residents and businesses who support our events.

In addition, we gratefully acknowledge the ongoing support of our County Council, County Executive and The Aegis in promoting awareness about blood cancers (leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma, myelodysplastic syndromes and myeloproliferative neoplasms) and the work of LLS during Blood Cancer Awareness Month in September.

This year, we especially thank Councilman Mike Perrone, who took time to present the Harford County Council proclamation at one of our events, and to the management and staff of Main Street Tower, Red Robin Bel Air, Giant Food in Abingdon and Bel Air Farmers Market for hosting Blood Cancer Awareness and Fundraising Events. Over the years, Light the Night and other LLS events have given me the pleasure of meeting many caring people.

I urge anyone who is affected by a blood cancer diagnosis to contact LLS at www.lls.org or by calling its Resource Center at 1-800-955-4572.

Harford County residents may also call Upper Chesapeake Cancer LifeNet (443-643-3350) to attend the blood cancer educational support group which is co-sponsored by LLS and meets monthly at the Kaufman Cancer Center.
