Martha is team captain of Every Drop Counts at Vermont’s Light The Night. She began volunteering for LLS four years ago after attending the Survivors of Hope event in Stowe, VT. Her zest for life is an inspiration to others battling blood cancer. As a volunteer on the Vermont Light The Night Leadership Committee, Martha embodies teamwork and is always willing to jump in and lend a hand. And she is determined! To raise money for her team, Martha made and sold over 500 jars of jam.
Thank you for making a difference and bringing light to the darkness of cancer!
