About Shine a Light

Shine a Light on Lung Cancer events are hosted by health care facilities during the month of November as part of Lung Cancer Awareness Month activities. These events bring together those living with lung cancer, their families and the health care teams at hospitals across the country.

Shine a Light events are educational events for the lung cancer community in your area. The program typically consists of speakers from your faculty who can share updates on treatment options, clinical trials and support programs and lung cancer survivors and caregivers whose stories provide perspective and hope to those dealing with a lung cancer diagnosis. Many also include a question and answer period so attendees can ask your experts any questions they may not be able to ask at appointments.

Shine a Light events are also intended to honor all of those who are living with lung cancer and those we have lost to the disease. There are flashlights provided and each event has a moment of remembrance. Flashlights are turned on and we literally shine a light on those touched by lung cancer. Many times there are honor walls or balloon launches as well. We encourage those who host a Shine a Light event to get creative!

We provide the tools and materials to make it as easy as possible for you to make your Shine a Light successful.

Contact Maggie, mwalsh@lungcanceralliance.org or 202-742-1893 with any questions.
