Lakers support their local heroes

The 2013 Light the Night Walk was held at East Noble High School on September 24 to support the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, honoring Lakeland High School’s Chyanna Smith and Arianna Smith, an 8th grader at Lakeland Middle School.

Chyanna was diagnosed with T-Cell Lymphoma in 2010 and after treatment is currently in remission. Arianna was diagnosed with B-Cell Lymphoma in 2011, celebrated the end of her chemo treatment in February 2013, and is also currently in remission.

With the help of Lakeland Middle School, Lakeland High School, and representatives from Lima-Brighton Elementary along with many family friends, Team Arianna and Chyanna was able to raise over $1,300 to donate to the cause.
