In the spot, the 40-year-old states, “I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma when I was 38…I don’t think I had an appreciation for just how treatable and curable certain cancers are.”
Hall is in remission for Hodgkins Lymphoma, and the Light The Night Walk is the largest cancer fundraiser night walk in the country with over 250,000 participants.
“The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society pours a tremendous amount of money directly into cutting-edge cancer research – research that I’ve certainly benefited from,” Hall explained. “It’s an organization that you can be confident is at the forefront of moving things forward.”
The PSA was produced and directed by filmmaker Jesse Dylan, and the campaign is called “Walk As if Your Life Depended on It,” which Hall reiterates in the video.
“A walk like this, I think it’s a beautiful thing,” he says. “The shared experience is valuable beyond words.”
