Light the Night Walk in Hollywood – October 5, 2013

ic_713388For the past five years, 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.

Please take a moment to visit Nadia’s Cancer Crusaders and make a donation. Nadia and her team are hoping to raise $10,000 for the LLS organization by the date of the Sunset-Grower Studios Light the Night Walk on October 5, 2013. Let’s see if we can meet that goal and EXCEED it to help support beating blood cancers!

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 anf 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.

Nadia to Host Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Gala – June 15, 2013

08_group04Nadia Bjorlin will be hosting the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s “Man & Woman of the Year” Gala on June 15, 2013. The gala will recognize the fundraising efforts of 19 candidates who are vying for the title of “Man” or “Woman” of the Year which is determined by which male and female candidate has raised the most money during a 10-week campaign. The campaign will conclude during the Grand Finale Gala on June 15, 2013 at the Skirbal Cultural Center in Los Angeles, California. There will be a limited amount of tickets sold to fans. Please visit the Greater Los Angeles Chapter of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society for ticket information, opportunities to donate, and for information on the candidates.

Their goal is to raise $500,000 that will fund lifesaving blood cancer research and help people who are afflicted.  Though most candidates have a personal connection to a blood cancers – and some candidates are cancer survivors themselves –  there are two children  who are both leukemia survivors that serve as the inspiration for all the candidates – 5 year-old Nathaniel Loomis (“2013 Boy of the Year”) and 13 year-old Brittany Lanham (“2013 Girl of the Year”).  Jack Wagner will also be honored that night for his extraordinary commitment to LLS by raising more than $1 million through his annual golf tournament over the past 7 years.

Nadia has also participated in the Light the Night Walk every year for the last 5 years. To date, her team has raised more than $50,000 for research in blood cancers.

More information will be posted in joining Nadia’s team Nadia’s Cancer Crusaders. The Light the Night Walk will be held October 5 at Sunset-Gower Studios in Hollywood.
