Missy's TeamJoin us as we "Light the Night"
One of the last things that Missy and I talked about was a letter from the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society asking her to be an Honored Hero. She signed the form that came with the letter, giving her permission for her picture and story to be used by the society. This was on Monday, May 17, 2004. She left us less than 48 hours after she signed the form. Missy had looked forward to participating in the Light the Night walk on September 16, 2004 in Columbia, South Carolina. We looked forward to being there together.
Missy's Team was formed to honor Melissa Sutton and her valiant battle against Hodgkin's Lymphoma.
Missy's Team participated in the Light the Night Walk in Columbia, South Carolina on September 16, 2004, to celebrate and commemorate the lives touched by blood related cancers - leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's, and myeloma. Missy's family was there, friends were there, as well as faculty, students, and parents from Alice Drive Middle School.
Missy's Team raised $5,011.67. WE WERE THE TOP fundraising team at the 2004 Columbia, South Carolina, Light the Night Walk. Over $1,300 was raised by Alice Drive Middle School faculty, students, and parents. The rest of the funds were raised or donated by Missy's family and friends.
