NANTICOKE TO HOST 3rd ANNUAL SHINE A LIGHT

October 12, 2017

Nanticoke Cancer Care Services will hold their 2nd annual Shine a Light event on Thursday, November 2 at 6 pm at the Cancer Care Center. Join Nanticoke and local community members for a night of hope, inspiration and support for all of those touched by lung cancer.

Shine a Light, sponsored by the Lung Cancer Alliance, promotes awareness for lung cancer and provides hope, inspiration and support for all of those touched by lung cancer. Founded by a lung cancer survivor and caregiver, it is the largest coordinated awareness event for lung cancer in the United States. Through Shine a Light, people are able to experience a growing community of supportive and caring individuals. The lighting of the flashlights to honor survivors and loved ones is a highlight of the evening.

Nanticoke’s event will be held at 6:00 pm inside the Nanticoke Cancer Care Center. There will be presentations from a featured guest speaker and a lung cancer survivor. Light refreshments will be provided. This event is free and open to the public.
