The Backus Family has landed in Fort Worth, Texas! Gail is working nearby in Weatherford, and I'm planning to start something new with more details coming soon. One thing we want to continue to support is the Light the Night walk in honor of Gail's Mom, Loretta Wilcox. We're already plugged into the local group and attended the 2013 kickoff event on Sunday.
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) funds lifesaving research that has contributed to major advances in the treatment of blood cancers and treatments for other types of cancer, such as chemotherapy and stem cell transplants. New targeted therapies that kill cancer cells without harming normal tissue are providing drugs and procedures that are improving quality of life.
One of the key fundraising events each year is the Light the Night Walk. Gail, Nate, Curt and I, along with some of our closest friends and family, have participated in the walk for the last few years in honor of Gail's mother who succumbed to the disease in 2004. The sidebar briefly describes her short battle with the disease.
