The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Congratulates Cy Young Award Winner Cliff Lee
Date:11/13/2008

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., Nov. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- On Thursday, Nov. 13, 2008, Cleveland Indians pitcher Cliff Lee won the American League Cy Young Award. Pitching a remarkable 22-3 season, Lee was a favorite to win the prestigious prize.

Lee is a champion both on and off the field. For the past three years, he and his wife, Kristen, have served as honorary chairs for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Northern Ohio Chapter Light The Night(TM) Walk. This annual event has special meaning to the Lee family, as they have personally been touched by blood cancer. In 2001, their son, Jaxon, was diagnosed with leukemia at just 4 months old. Today, Jaxon is in remission and is a healthy and happy 7-year-old.

Light the Night is an LLS annual fundraising event held each fall to raise funds for cancer research and patient services. Light The Night celebrates survivorship and is a meaningful way to remember those who have lost their battle with blood cancer.
