Strong bond with people so vital for everyone
ON FRIDAY night, I had the pleasure to attend our local Light the Night fundraiser.
It was touching to see so many participate in such a great event.
Funds that were raised by selling lanterns and raffle tickets will go towards the Leukaemia Foundation.
White lantern ambassador Laura Sullivan was diagnosed with leukaemia about 18 months ago.
Laura and her family think very highly of the charity organisation that helped them a lot during their journey with this illness.
The Leukaemia Foundation supplied them with a fully furnished unit in Brisbane when Laura needed to stay close to the hospital.
Laura and her sister Jane as well as mum Debbie spoke openly about the disease that now affects their lives so greatly.
It was incredible to see them smile widely and laugh so much while talking about such a difficult topic.
Laura talked about the treatment she has been through over the past one and a half years and what it showed to me was that she has always had the support and love of her family.
Thank you Laura, Jane and Debbie for talking to me on the night.
It was wonderful to see how close your family is and how much you mean to each other.
It is great to know the funds we all raised on Friday will support other families that find themselves in the same situation as Laura and her family.
