About Light The Night

As a mission-driven health organization, nothing is more important to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society(LLS) than the safety and well-being of blood cancer patients, their families, and the many staff, volunteers, donors, partners, and campaign participants who serve them. With this in mind, the Kansas City Light The Night event will be virtual this year.

We are dedicated to providing a best-in-class virtual experience that will allow us to display that passion for helping end blood cancers. We hope you’ll join us to bring light to the darkness of cancer!


DATE: 10/02/2021

TIME: 7:00-8:00 PM

We will be emailing all participants with detailed information on how to join our virtual event in the 2 weeks leading up to the event night.


On event night, we will all join together as a community on Zoom to celebrate together and then we will move over to our virtual event site to engage with the Light The Night activities we all know and love! During our Zoom program we will connect with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society mission, celebrate our top fundraisers and watch our moving and inspiring ceremony together. 

Then, we will head over to our virtual event site to engage with:

Circle of Survivors: Join the Circle of Survivors by adding your lantern and sharing your story of survivorship or celebrate all of the patients & survivors by reading their stories.

Remembrance Pavilion: Honor and remember a loved one who has been lost to cancer in the Remembrance Pavilion where you can add their photo & a special message.

Supporter Celebration: Bring light to the darkness of cancer by raising your virtual lantern. Use our augmented reality filter and choose the lantern color that best represents how you Light The Night.


On event night, our collective passion to bring light to darkness of cancer will shine through with the continued commitment of supporters like you!
