Leni is a 4-month-old New Yorker who was diagnosed in August 2013 with acute megakaryoblastic leukemia (AML-M7), a rare form of pediatric bone marrow cancer. Leni's battle with cancer has its ups and downs but she's proven herself to be a strong, relentless fighter as she continues her first round of chemotherapy. Read more about Leni's story here.
Support Leni and her family by attending our fundraiser on October 5 at Hype Gym (406 2nd Ave). 50% of proceeds from the event will go directly to the The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Light the Night campaign in honor of Leni. Light the Night is an annual fundraising walk held in NYC to raise funds for blood cancer research and treatment. Learn more about Leni's campaign here and show your #loveforleni!!
Acute Megakaryoblastic Leukemia represents approximately 1% of all leukemias during childhood & has an incidence of 0.5% per million per year.
