WASHINGTON - FOX 5 has partnered with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to shed some light on a topic near and dear to our hearts. During our fight to raise funds for research to find a cure for blood cancer, we wanted to introduce some of our viewers to the people and their families who are still fighting the fight.

Tucker Barnes got the chance to visit with 7-year-old acute lymphocytic leukemia patient Michael Erlandson, his sister Carlie and his mother Sandi.
Michael is feeling good and is heading back to school after missing a lot of time for treatment.
He was really excited when his favorite baseball player, Bryce Harper, recently signed his hat.
He told Tucker he is also very excited for the Light the Night Walk4LLS and will be with team Walk With MEE!
Michael is a fighter and is ready to knock out cancer!
