12/2/2015 - Lights of Life

Send a Light of Hope this holiday season to someone you love!
For a $5 donation, honor a special person in your life with a gift that will help provide better cancer treatments. For a $15 donation send your honoree one of three beautiful pins - a crystal pink breast cancer awareness pin; a crystal lavender cancer awareness pin; and a hope lapel pin.

Honorees receive a card informing them that a light shines in their honor, or in memory of someone who will never be forgotten. Honorees and donors are invited to attend a tree lighting ceremony to light hope for all who have been touched by cancer.

The trees will be lit with pink and lavender lights - pink for breast cancer, and lavender to bring awareness to all cancers.

All funds raised by this program support the non-profit Community Cancer Research Foundation, working to bring the advances being made in cancer research today to area residents. The Community Cancer Research Foundation supports more than 30 cancer research studies through the hospitals of the Community Healthcare System: Community Hospital in Munster; St. Catherine Hospital in East Chicago; and St. Mary Medical Center in Hobart.
