Karen said she was lucky that her cancer was caught extremely early due to a slight abnormality in her normal blood work for her annual physical.
“I am very thankful for my primary care doctor being diligent and sending me to a specialist for further testing,” she said. “I am now under continual monitoring of my blood levels so that when/if anything changes we can take the necessary steps quickly to ensure we keep my disease in check.”
Knowing that there are others who are dealing with this disease, Karen and her family [Team Possible] have organized the “Light The Night” fundraiser to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, at the Orange Ale House, 517 Boston Post Road, Orange, on Thursday, Nov. 7, from 4-8 p.m.
Tickets are $15 each and can be purchased in advance or at the door, and entitle you to a buffet and ONE free wine or beer, courtesy of the Orange Ale House.
Raffle prizes, donated by local and area businesses will add to the excitement.
All proceeds from admission and raffle tickets go to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, which is dedicated to fighting blood cancers.
For more information or to purchase tickets, call Karen or Mike Iassogna at 203-799-6633 or Harry or Susan Richardson at 203-874-4213.
