R&B/POP Artist Frank Anthony Supports The Leukemia & Lymphoma
Society Canada’s Light The Night® Walks In Ontario.
Toronto, ON (September 24, 2013) – R&B/POP Artist Frank Anthony will be lending his support to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada’s annual evening walks in Ontario to celebrate and commemorate people whose lives have been touched by cancer.
Each year, in communities across Canada, teams or families, friends, co-workers and local and national corporations come together to raise funds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada’s (LLSC’s) Light The Night Walk events and bring help and hope to people battling blood cancers.
Frank Anthony’s world premiere performance of a song written by him, to raise awareness about a disease that is close to home for him and his family, Hodgkin Lymphoma, will be unveiled at the Toronto Walk on October 2, 2013. “I wanted to use my music as a platform to give back to this amazing organization,” says Frank Anthony. “But just as important, I wanted to reach out to my generation to get the message across that we are not invincible and that there are people our age living with the disease,” says Anthony, “and that we need to support them, let them know they are not alone and most importantly believe, dream big, and live life #DBLL,” he added.
In addition, Frank Anthony has asked his fans, via social media, to support his fundraising efforts through the following link: www.tinyurl.com/frankanthonymusic

Light The Night Walk events are evenings filled with inspiration. During this leisurely walk, family and friends gather in select sites across Canada to bring light to the dark world of cancer. Thousands of walkers carry illuminated lanterns showcasing their relation to the cause; a white lantern for blood cancer survivors, a red one to walk as a supporter and a gold one in memory of a loved one.
