November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month. Healthcare facilities around the country host a program called Shine A Light on Lung Cancer.
A few members of Positive Impact Fox Valley attended this annual Shine A Light on Lung Cancer vigil at Alexian Brothers Medical Center in Hoffman Estates.
The evening begins with health care professionals sharing updates on treatment options, clinical trials and support programs. It quickly takes a very emotional turn as lung cancer survivors and caregivers share their stories and their hope to those dealing with lung cancer.
Shine A Light on Lung Cancer events are intended to honor all those living with lung cancer and those who we have lost to this disease. For more information on Lung Cancer awareness and Shine a Light on Lung Cancer events near you, please visit www.lungcanceralliance.org
We hold this even very close to our hearts as one of our own members is a lung cancer survivor. <3
