MADISON, Wis. (WMTV)-- The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society is helping families just like the Sanborns of Cambria battle cancer at its annual event Thursday night.

Liam Sanborn is this year's featured hero for the Madison Area Light the Night Event. Liam is four-years-old and is an ALL survivor and a CML fighter.

We shared the Sanborns' emotional journey last night on NBC15 News at 10.

On Thursday night LLS is hosting one of its biggest events to raise money for cutting edge treatments, called “Light the Night,” at Warner Park in Madison.

Doors opened at 5 p.m., opening ceremonies started at 6:45 p.m. and a walk to raise awareness and money to fight cancer kicked off at 7 p.m.

NBC15’s Mike Jacques is serving as tonight’s emcee for the event.
