Light The Night: Leukemia survivor, Lisa Gray, walks for friend who lost the battle

Two-time cancer survivor, Lisa Gray, is walking in this year’s Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Light The Night for the first time. The fifteen-year breast cancer survivor, who was also diagnosed with chronic myelogenous leukemia, says her disease is in remission and she is now in a good spot where she can give back to others.

While Lisa is fortunate enough to be in recovery, she says her friend, Terry Strand, lost her battle with acute myeloid leukemia last spring. She says she will walk this year in Terry’s honor.

"The survival rate for acute myeloid leukemia is not high. And that's exactly why we have to keep going. We have to keep funding the research to get cures for the children and adults who are facing blood cancers that don't have that success rate," Lisa said.
