Southcoast Centers for Cancer Care to host Shine a Light on Lung Cancer on November 17
FAIRHAVEN, Mass. — Southcoast Centers for Cancer Care, a part of Southcoast Health, will host the 8th Annual Shine a Light on Lung Cancer vigil on November 17 at 6 p.m. at the Southcoast Center for Cancer Care at 206 Mill Road in Fairhaven.
Southcoast Health joins 200 other communities across the country to host this event as part of a national movement created by the Lung Cancer Alliance (LCA). It was created to provide hope, inspiration and support to the thousands who are diagnosed with lung cancer. Lung cancer patients, survivors, family members, caregivers and the community are invited to join Southcoast Health for this very special vigil.
Television and radio personality Sue Brady will serve as the emcee for the event, and there will be performances by local musical duo The Harper and the Minstrel. The speaking program will also include personal stories from survivors and lung cancer experts. At the end of the speaking program, the exterior of the cancer center will be lit in purple lights and guests will illuminate glow sticks in honor of survivors and in memory of those who have passed.
This free event is open to the public. Light refreshments will be served. Registration is required. Visit www.southcoast.org/shine or call 877-822-2732 to RSVP.
