Bringing Light to the Darkness

By uclahealth

“The Light the Night Walk raises funds for research and raises awareness to come together and support those who have lost someone to a blood cancer,” recounts Judy Reiter, an executive assistant for the UCLA Health Department of Medicine. “I’m passionate about raising funds for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society for multiple reasons. The first is working at UCLA Health on the research end—as employees we’re passionate. But on a personal level, I am a melanoma survivor. Anybody who has had any kind of cancer diagnosis knows the fear that comes with it. If there is any opportunity to raise awareness and raise community support, I want to be a part of it. It makes me feel empowered to do something, and if everybody just donated a little bit, we could all bring light to the darkness.”
