All for a good cause, all for Rachel

Last night Rachel's Regulators decided to Light the Night to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, just as we've done for many years since Rachel was diagnosed in 1999. Our team's turnout was sparse, but we did pretty well overall and had a great time!

Lucy was so proud of her face paint. She knew just what she wanted, too. She waited quietly, patiently in line, and as soon as she reached the front and the lady asked what she wanted painted on her face, she pointed to a picture and said "That one."

Unfortunately, Jenny and Ben got cut out of the photo, and when we tried to take another one, my camera of course wouldn't work.

This little girl was so cute! She had just had her face painted and she kept modeling and looking in the window at herself.

Next year marks the 10th Anniversary of Rachel's bone marrow transplant (donated by the oh-so-generous Jenny). Let's make next year a monumental year for the Light the Night Walk. If you have touched Rachel's life, or if your life has been touched by Rachel, or even if you don't know her personally, please consider walking and/or making a donation. The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society literally saved her life, and all donations are invested wisely. The walk is held on the last Sunday of September, so be sure to mark your calendar for 2010!
