Light the night for others
believe me, it becomes extremely hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel and giving up can seem like the least exhausting option.
“The Leukaemia Foundation do so much more than you realise.”
Lauren has already raised $2480 for Light the Night, and encouraged others to get involved.
The funds raised at Light the Night will be used by the Foundation to provide families around Australia with services such as emotional support from diagnosis, through treatment and beyond.
The Foundation also provides accommodation during their loved one’s weeks and months of treatment in the city as well as transport to and from chemotherapy – all at no cost to them.
“I encourage others to get involved and register for Light the Night,” Lauren said.
“The Leukaemia Foundation to me were like a light in a dark corner and were able to give me the support I needed – thanks to the donations of many selfless strangers.
“You don’t have to wear a cape to be a hero, you only have to make a donation.”
The Light the Night Walk is on Friday, October 7, at the UWA.
