In September, more than 30,000 Lights of Hope will line the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool. For some, the ceremony is a celebration of survivorship. But, for far too many, it’s a remembrance of someone who was lost to cancer. Your support will help us light the Lincoln Memorial in encouragement and remembrance for those who have fought cancer, been a caregiver, or lost a loved one.
It is an arresting site. And it grows, in size and impact, every year. You make that impact possible.
The Lights of Hope ceremony is a demonstration of, in some small way, how many people are affected by cancer across our country. The ceremony takes place on the same day that hundreds of American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network volunteers will be meeting with their members of Congress about policies that support the fight against cancer.
This ceremony is a visual message to the people who run our nation - to show a small sampling of the people we are representing from back home. These Lights of Hope represent family, friends, co-workers, and others who are going to be affected by the decisions our elected officials make.
Your donations help us throughout the year in the work that we do, but the reason for this ceremony is so we can effectively demonstrate that impact. Please, help support our mission by making a donation today.
