And it was a really, really hard time. And I think I something about TheLight and, I haven't listened to them for a while, so I turned you on and immediately the positivity and the love that just came over me... it just gave me that hope in that moment, straight away that I was like, I can fight, I can do this. I can get through this life." Chloe from Ferntree Gully.
“Without TheLight I probably wouldn't be here. Simple as that… you can't shut everything out, you can't block everything out, but with TheLight, if you've got that in the background, there's hope, there's grace, there's forgiveness…” Steve from Point Cook
