Light the night for oth­ers

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Street Watch -

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.
