This October, patients, survivors, loved ones and other members of the community will gather to help fight blood cancers such as lymphoma. The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada (LLS Canada) is organizing another edition of the Winnipeg Light The Night Walk. The event will take place at The Forks Festival Park and Stage, on Saturday, October 01, 2016 at 5:00 pm. Each person will hold a different light depending on their position.
Supports will have a red lantern, patients and survivors are invited to hold a white lantern, and each gold lantern represents a loved one lost to cancer. “Join us for an evening filled with inspiration and hope, at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada’s Winnipeg Light The Night Walk on October 1st at twilight, and help make a difference in the lives of more than 110,000 Canadians affected by blood cancer,” stated the LLS Canada. “Together we can bring light to the dark world of cancer.”
“I was 24-years-old when I was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Today I can say I’m a survivor. Walk with me. Walk with them. Walk. Because someday is today,” invites Ellisa Sound, who will walk among many others as a survivor, in the video that was recently shared by the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada on their YouTube channel.
