ExactCare Sponsors Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Annual Light The Night Event
Cleveland (September 22, 2021) – ExactCare, a CarepathRx Company, is proud to once again support the annual Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) Light The Night event, held on Sunday, October 3, 2021 in Cleveland, Ohio.
LLS is a global leader in the fight against blood cancers through research, education and support, and policy and advocacy. Their mission is to “cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.” Each year, LLS hosts the Light The Night Walk to raise funds for research and support for people battling cancer.
“It was an easy decision to partner with LLS, as we both share a common mission to improve the quality of life for patients,” said Marty Butler, ExactCare Chief Financial Officer and LLS Executive Sponsor. “The patients LLS serves are going through a challenging time with new or existing cancer diagnoses. The last thing they need on top of an already complex health situation is to worry about how they will manage their medications. ExactCare can help those patients to reduce the burden of medication management, and together with LLS, we can improve the quality of their lives.”
ExactCare has committed to the “Words of Light” sponsorship during Light the Night and raising $20,000 for LLS this year—much of this from employees’ personal contributions.
“With two weeks left of fundraising, we are more than 85% to goal,” said Graham Gravley, ExactCare SVP, Clinical Services and LLS Executive Sponsor. “Supporting LLS and the Light The Night event is the least we could do to support a passionate group of researchers, volunteers and experts actively fighting to find the cure for blood cancer. I am honored to be a part of an incredible community sharing a meaningful purpose.”
Last year, ExactCare and its employees raised over $17,500 for LLS and was recognized for the “Rookie of the Year” award for raising the most money for LLS during the first year of participation. This year, Marty Butler was recognized as a top contributor for the Executive Challenge Action Day.
