Around 40,000 Australian families face the challenges of leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma and related blood disorders every day. And every 46 minutes, another person is diagnosed.
Light the Night is a memorable and uplifting event to give these people hope for a brighter future.
The Leukaemia Foundation is calling on all angels – people who like to brighten the lives of others – to Light the Night with lanterns of love, life and hope for people with blood cancer.
Gather at twilight with family, friends and work colleagues and shine a beautiful lantern:
■ Shine a gold ‘Love Light’ to remember a loved one
■ Shine a white ‘Life Light’ to reflect on your life with blood cancer
■ Shine a blue ‘Hope Light’ to give hope and support to others.
As night falls and the lanterns glow more brightly, you will hear inspiring stories as the special moment arrives – a gentle scenic walk to Light the Night.
This walk took place in Geelong on 14th September 2011
