Our Inspiration: 2013 Honored Heroes
Honored Heros are volunteers who have been affected by a blood cancer and inspire our participants by sharing their cancer journies. These patients share their stories at the Light The Night Walks and events like the Corporate Breakfast Reception, Boston Kickoff and Annual Awards Party.

Boston Honored Hero- Joanna
"There is more work to be done to give every one of us a chance to live the long healthy lives we deserve."
Nashua Honored Hero- Carla Carroll
"There were several times during the journey that I needed encouragement and someone to speak to who had been through a cancer treatment. I had a good friend who was a 10 year survivor that I would call."
Nashua Honored Hero- Thomas Houghtaling
"My wife and children were as worried as I was because no one knew what kind of future there was going to be. My children did everything they could for me and my wife's support was unparalleled."
Wakefield Honored Hero - Linda Khang
"I thought crying isn't going to make things better; being strong and hoping for the best was the only way to think. I had to stay strong, not only for me, but for everyone else. I wasn't going to let cancer get in the way of my whole life. Cancer doesn't define me, I define myself."
Worcester Honored Hero- Kristen Lamoureux
"My family has been amazing. They have been there every step of the way and continue to do so. I am lucky to have such a strong support sysytem."
