Five years in remission after battling Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL's Linsey Godfrey (Caroline) is still doing her part to beat cancer. On October 6th, she'll participate as an "Honored Hero" in the Leukemia And Lymphoma Society's "Light The Night Walk" to help raise awareness and funding for cancer research. It's the first time the actress will participate in the event, and she's currently rallying support for her "Oh My Godfrey" team.
To find out how you can help, simply visit Godfrey's personal team Web site. "People can contribute, or join the team and come walk with me at the event," says the actress. By visiting her site, you can also read more about the Godfrey's personal fight against cancer and see pictures of her throughout the course of her treatment, including after she'd lost her hair as a result of her chemotherapy. "It's one thing for me to say I used to be sick and another thing for people to actually see it," she explains.
Godfrey hopes sharing her own experience with cancer helps encourage viewers who may be going through a similar ordeal. It's a cause that's close to her heart, not just because of her own battle, but because her step-mom also survived Hodgkins Lymphoma. "I'm five years in remission and she's eight years in remission. I'm happy to be able to celebrate her fight, as well as mine. So this is a cause that's important to me on many levels."
