Payment Data Systems has joined in the fight against cancer by partnering with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS).
We're excited to announce that our CEO, Louis Hoch, will serve as the 2019 Light the Night Corporate Walk Chair. We're committed to serving in a leadership role to increase blood cancer awareness and make a significant impact towards a CURE for CANCER. We’ve already begun our company-wide effort by sponsoring $10,000 to the 2019 Light the Night Walk and creating a walk team.
But, we also need your help!
On Thursday, April 18, we invited speakers from The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to our main office in San Antonio to hear their touching stories of how the LLS has helped them and their families battle cancer. They also shared how we can help save lives by increasing awareness of LLS and Light the Night Walk Event among our friends and family and by raising funds for research and support of patients and their families.
About Light the Night
Light the Night Walk is The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's annual walk to build awareness of blood cancers and to raise money to find a cure. Over 200 communities of surivivors and supporters participate in the 1 mile walk carrying lanterns of various colors. Survivors carry red lanterns; supporters carry red; while those walking in memory of a loved one carry gold.
