A Message from Beth Snider

My sister, Lynne McKune was diagnosed with Chronic Myelgenious Leukemia in December of 2010. Thankfully, because of tremendous research and medications she went into Remission – 5 months later. Lynne is married to a great guy, Kevin, and they have 2 amazing daughters – Allyson a freshman in college and Katie – a sophomore in high school. This disease has been difficult on all of them but together with the help of family and friends each day looks brighter.

On October 8, 2011 in downtown Lexington the Leukemia Society is hosting the Light the Night Walk to raise funds for further research on curing all types of Leukemia. You can make a donation to Lynne’s team by clicking on the link below:

The funds raised go directly to the Leukemia Society for research. My sister is also putting together a team to take part in the Light The Night Walk on October 8, 2011. For example a donation of $100 helps supply laboratory researchers with supplies and materials critical to carrying out their search for cures. 

I know firsthand how generous the American Saddlebred Community can be – I have witnessed it many many times over the years as we have gathered together to support others and causes such as Breast Cancer Research. 

I hope that you will take a moment and click on the link and make a donation – absolutely any amount of support will be greatly appreciated.
