The four survivors were introduced on air and modeled back-to-school fashions from Burlington, LLS’s Light The Night Walk #1 Honored Friend. Last year Burlington raised more than $3 million for LLS! Visit a local Burlington store today as they aim to surpass that $3 million total in 2013.

A few young blood cancer survivors will also be featured in upcoming segments on ABC 7 Chicago (Aug. 29) and WGN (Sept. 4).
