LETTER OF THE WEEK
COFFS Harbour locals who have felt the devastating impact of blood cancer are being invited to carry a lantern alongside friends and family at special twilight events being held at Park Beach Reserve on Friday, October 6. Now in its 10th year, the Leukaemia Foundation’s Light the Night fundraiser brings Australia’s blood cancer community together in more than 140 locations, in every state and territory, to remember and reflect during a moving ceremony and short lantern walk. Those attending the Coffs Harbour Light the Night events will gather for a small ceremony before setting off on a picturesque lantern walk. Every day, 35 people are diagnosed with a blood cancer such as leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma or related blood disorders and they’ll turn to the Leukaemia Foundation for help.
