Help us help a friend…


Please join us in supporting our dear friend, Donna Brooks Dehncke, in her quest to raise awareness and funds for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of America.  Donna and her husband, Rae, proudly support the organization’s mission in memory of their daughter, Andrea.  Please read below for a message from Donna; and kindly consider walking with them during the Light the Night Walk on October 19, in Washington, DC, or making a charitable contribution.  Many thanks for your time and consideration!  ~The Valkyrie Team __________________________________

Dear Friends and Family,
This will be  our 10th year to participate in Light the Night, the annual fund raiser for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.  Rae and  I are thankful for your support over these past years!  We do this in memory of my daughter, Andrea Brooks.  Andrea lost her battle with leukemia 9 years ago.  After our loss, we established our team, “Andrea’s Angels” to join in the fight for a cure.  We feel proud that our contribution to this effort is making a difference! The LLS is making fabulous progress with cures and treatments.   We continually miss Andrea, and feel this is the best way to honor her memory. 
For the second year, our Savannah team will join the Northern Virginia team in Washington, DC.  We are very excited to participate in DC, and hope that the location will allow family and friends to join us.  The walk will be held on October 19, 2013, at Freedom  Plaza (13th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue).  Festivities begin at 5PM and the walk will commence at 7PM.  We look forward to an amazing event as Andrea’s Angels join hundreds of others strongly committed to the fight for a cure.  We would LOVE to have you join us!
If you haven’t completed your charitable donations for the year, we ask that you consider making a tax deductible donation in Andrea’s memory to the Leukemia and Lymphoma  Society.  You may donate by inserting this  web site into your browser:
If you have already completed your charitable donations for the year, then please remember Andrea in your thoughts and prayers.
As always, we truly appreciate your caring support,
Donna and Rae
