On Thursday, 8 October people just like yourself right across Queensland Australia, will light balloons to Remember, Celebrate and Give Hope to patients and families living with leukaemias, lymphomas, myeloma and related blood disorders.
You can help create a sea of lights across the sky by lighting your own balloon. Each coloured balloon contains a tiny light and has special meaning.
They will light a gold balloon to Remember a loved one lost.
Light a white balloon to Celebrate being a blood cancer surviver.
Light a blue balloon to Give Hope and show your support.
Before you Light the Night, enjoy a family fun atmosphere with entertainment and inspirational stories. Following the lighting ceremony you can take party in a leisurely scenic walk to light the night.On the evening there will also be the opportunity for participants to write a reflective personalised message on a blue, white or gold paper balloon. These balloons will then be displayed on a symbolic wall for other participants to see and read. Messages can be about hope, love, courage, compassion and support for patients, families and friend who have been touched in some way by leukaemia's, lymphomas, myeloma or related blood disorders.Leukaemia Foundation's Light the Night08 October 2009Stockland Park, Bokarina.
