What is Light the Night?

On the evening of Friday, 30 September Australians touched by blood cancer came together with their loved ones to Light the Night.

Families and friends hosted their own special Light the Night and took part in the virtual lantern lighting ceremony alongside thousands of other impacted families across Australia.

The lighting of lanterns symbolises the hope we share for a future free of blood cancer and the support of a community that understands the darkness a blood cancer brings to our lives.

Funds raised through this special event provide families facing blood cancer with the care they will need to make it through every scary, uncertain moment that follows a diagnosis.

About Light the Night
