Miranda Cosgrove Serves As National Ambassador for The Leukemia


Miranda Cosgrove has been named The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's National Ambassador for its 2012 Light The Night® Walks and appears in a new public service announcement to promote this important fundraising campaign.

"I will walk for my grandmother in hopes of a healthy recovery," said Cosgrove. "I will walk for my fans -- those teens who have battled leukemia -- the most common cancer in teens my age. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is making it possible for blood cancer patients of all ages to live longer, better lives."

In the PSA, Cosgrove asks us to imagine a world without blood cancer and join LLS at Light The Night walks all across the country to push for breakthroughs in new and more effective treatments. Cosgrove is seen walking down a park path under a starry night sky. With every step the forest around her begins to light up, swelling to a beautiful red glow at its brightest.

Cosgrove has started a national Light The Night fundraising team to mobilize her fans across the country. Supporters are encouraged to join her team by registering for their local walk at  www.lightthenight.org/mirandacosgrove.
