The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Triangle Light the Night, held on October 21 at the Koka Booth Amphitheatre in Cary, celebrated, honored, and remembered those touched by blood cancers.
All told the community event raised $1,527,726.00, with Team DCI, captained by hematologic oncologist Carlos M. De Castro III, MD, raising more than $6,000 of that total.
The evening festivities included Duke Cancer Institute's traditional "Glam Station," which included a photo booth, face painting, makeup, fairy hair, and DCI giveaways. New this year — light-up blue-devil horn headbands.
Attendees also enjoyed a cool evening walk around Symphony Lake — a vision to behold with white, gold, and red lanterns amidst a sea of blue-devil horns.
Brooke Green, a non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma survivor, joined DeCastro for a photo and shared an additional photo of the two together nine years ago in clinic when she was at her cancer treatment halfway mark.
