Nadia and her team Nadia’s Cancer Crusaders have participated in the Light the Night Walk in southern California. To date, her team has raised more than $50,000 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, an organization near and dear to Nadia’s heart. Twenty years ago this year, Nadia’s father, Ulf Bjorlin Sr. passed away from leukemia. He was a renowned conductor, composer, and artist – and most importantly, a father and husband.
A note from Nadia…
Thank you all who have graciously agreed to donate your time and money to such an important cause. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society has always been near and dear to my heart. My father passed away from Leukemia when I was 13 years old, so I’ve experienced firsthand how devastating a blood cancer can be, and how profoundly it affects family and friends of those diagnosed. An astounding 148,040 people this year alone will be diagnosed, that’s one person every 4 minutes and over 9% of all cancer diagnoses.
By participating in the “Light the Night” walk, we are not only raising awareness and money, but we are potentially saving many lives. So, let’s keep fighting cancer and honor our loved ones in the process. Thank you.

Art Van Furniture Joins with ‘Days of our Lives’ Cast Members to Aid Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries-Genesis House III
WARREN, Mich., Jan. 8 /PRNewswire/ — Art Van Furniture is teaming up with cast members from the long running daytime drama “Days of our Lives” and local NBC affiliate WDIV Channel 4 to help Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries- Genesis House III. Truckloads of furniture including 50 mattress sets, bed frames, night stands and dressers will arrive next week at the Genesis House III compliments of Art Van Furniture.
To celebrate this campaign and draw attention to the cause, “Days of our Lives” cast members Shawn Christian (“Dr. Daniel Jonas”) and Nadia Bjorlin (“Chloe Lane”) will make personal appearances at four Art Van Furniture stores for autographs and photos on January 16 (12 noon to 1pm at the Warren store and 3pm to 4pm at the Taylor store) and January 17 (12 noon to 1pm at the Lakeside store and 3pm to 4pm at the Novi store). Directions and details can be found at http://www.artvan.com.
Guests can also enter to win a trip for two to Los Angeles for a special tour of the set of the popular daytime drama, thanks to WDIV and the Producers of “Days of our Lives.” The trip will be awarded to one lucky winner who enters now through January 18th, either in store at any Art Van location, or on the website at www.artvan.com.
Everyone is invited to help make a difference, through donations of toiletries and cleaning supplies at all Metro Detroit area Art Van Furniture stores from January 8th through January 18th. Donation items needed include travel sized shampoo, toothpaste, lotion, soap and washcloths, as well as laundry and dish soap.
“These donations will benefit the lives of hundreds of homeless women and children,” said Art Van Elslander, Chairman and Founder of Art Van Furniture. “Providing a few of the comforts of home – even just the little things – can make a big difference.”
Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries’ Genesis House III provides emergency shelter, transitional housing, treatment and case management services to women and children in need. The actors became involved in the cause during an earlier visit to Detroit, when they toured the facility and participated in a food donation drive for DRMM. Shawn Christian, a Michigan native, commented, “It was an amazing experience travelling to Detroit this past November.
I felt like we did a lot for the community but realized that there was much more that could be done.”
Fellow cast member Nadia Bjorlin added, “In Detroit, I met many truly inspirational people who were struggling to put their lives back together. I choose to put my focus here in an effort to help them where I can. The important thing, though, is to be cognizant of the need for community service in Detroit and around our entire nation.”
