The LLSC is a volunteer health agency dedicated to finding a cure to blood cancer. The Light the Night Walk event on October 18, 2014 will help raise research funds. This annual evening event takes place at Stanley Park at Lumberman’s Arch and is filled with inspiration as family and friends gather in select sites across Canada to bring light to the dark world of cancer. Thousands of walkers carry illuminated lanterns showcasing their relation to the cause.
Funds raised by teams and individual walkers provide:
* Lifesaving blood cancer research * Free education materials and events for patients and their families * Local programs such as Family Support Groups and First Connection, a peer-to-peer counseling program * Comprehensive, personalized assistance through our Information Resources Centre
