Welcome to my personal Light The Night fundraising page! The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada’s (LLSC) Light The Night Walk is the nation’s night to pay tribute and bring hope to all those affected by blood cancer.

I was diagnosed with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia on June 4, 2014.  I was on watch and wait for 15 months until I had to undergo chemotherapy for six months.  In my case the chemotherapy did not work due to the fact that I have an abnormal chromosone which is known to not respond to the first line of treatment which has always been chemotherapy.  I have since become a strong advocate of "Test before Treat" which thankfully is something they are now doing without having to unnecessarily endure the lasting efffects of chemotherapy as I did.

Shortly after my failed attempt at chemotherapy I was able to participate in a clinical trial with a breakthrough medication that I took twice daily which helped me manage my disease for a couple of years until I started to slowly resist it.  I was scheduled to start a new trial shortly after Covid-19 made it's way into our lives.  Thankfully I had other options available to me until I can start the new trial that will either put me into remission for the first time or cure me!  I am truly grateful that I and other patients have options due to the continued research that takes place thanks to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada who not only fund research every year but also have programs to support patients and their families navigate their new normal. 

Team Tammi is looking forward to our 5th walk even though we may not be able to all be together.  We are hoping that with your support we will be able to surpass our total of $100,000 fundraised since 2016!   l am honoured to be part of the nationwide broadcast along with other survivors, patients, family and friends, remembering those that we have lost and celebrities from across the country for an evening full of inspiration and entertainment which will take place on Sat, Oct 24th. You can be part of the cure by kindly donating to my fundraising efforts. Thank you for supporting me and the thousands of Canadians living with a blood cancer.
