On behalf of the Leukaemia Foundation, I'd like to sincerely thank Dianne Van Beers and all local residents who supported and participated in our recent Light the Night event in Old Bar.
By coming out in strong numbers and lighting up the sky with beautiful gold, white and blue lanterns as a show of support meant so much to people living with blood cancer and their families.
I am pleased to share that $3,469.25 has been raised in the local area.
With this support and contribution, the Leukaemia Foundation is proud to serve people living with blood cancers and their families locally through our services, such as emotional support, education, accommodating during the weeks and months of treatment in the city, as well as transport to and from medical appointments - all at no cost.
The money raised through your donation will also be used to fund breakthrough research in hopes of achieving a future that is free of blood cancer.
Together, we are helping more Australians with blood cancer survive and live a better-quality of life. Thank you for 'lighting up' the way forward.
