The South Carolina Region of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) announced Terry K. Schmoyer of Schmoyer and Company CPAs as the Corporate Walk Chair of its 2022 Light The Night event. The Corporate Walk Chair will lead the effort in accelerating corporate support and driving revenue growth for Light The Night to support LLS’s goal of creating a world without blood cancers.
Light The Night is a fundraising campaign benefiting LLS and their funding of research to find blood cancer cures. Coming together for a common goal, friends, family and co-workers form fundraising teams. Culminating in inspiration and memorable evening walks every fall, participants in communities across North America join together carrying illuminated lanterns to take steps to end cancer – white for survivors, red for supporters and gold in memory of loved ones lost to cancer.
“I am so humbled and honored to serve as the Corporate Walk Chair and look forward to encouraging local businesses and corporations in this incredible community to join me in supporting LLS by participating in Light The Night,” said Terry Schmoyer, LLS’s Light The Night Chair in Columbia. “Together, we are taking steps to end cancer.” Terry is a 9 year survivor of Leukemia (CML).
This year’s event is scheduled to be held on Thursday, November 3rd at the South Carolina State House.
“When a loved one hears the words ‘you have cancer’ it is one of the darkest moments in your life,” said Amanda Yancey, LLS executive director. “At Light The Night, it is our aim to bring light to the darkness of cancer through research and cures, and reinforce the urgent need to raise awareness. LLS is a global leader in the fight against cancer, and we won’t stop until we achieve a world without blood cancer.”
Since its founding in 1949, LLS has invested more than $1.3 billion in cutting edge blood cancer research worldwide, and its support has been instrumental in the development of nearly every breakthrough in blood cancer treatment. With a more than 70-year track record, LLS has supported virtually every advancement in blood cancer treatment. LLS has helped advance more than 85 percent of blood cancer treatments approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) since 2017.
