About Shine a Light

Shine a Light on Lung Cancer provides our amazing community with hope, inspiration and support for those impacted by lung cancer and those at risk—from survivors to the newly diagnosed to loved ones to healthcare professionals to those simply wanting to help. You will learn about the latest advancements for lung cancer. You will hear stories of survival. And you will be connected with others in the lung cancer community.

For many, Shine a Light provides comfort knowing that they are not alone. Through Shine a Light, they are able to experience a growing community of supportive and caring individuals. The lighting of the flashlights to honor survivors and loved ones is the highlight of the evening. Shine a Light is a free event open to all. Consider hosting a Shine a Light in your area or attending one already taking place! Together, we will make the difference needed to save lives and propel research.

 

Host

This is the 6th Annual Shine a Light on Lung Cancer! You can become a part of the largest lung cancer event in the world! This year, Shine a Light kicks off on November 13th as part of lung cancer awareness month. Nearly 200 Shine a Light events will take place in cities across the US. Your hometown could be one of them!

We do our best to make hosting a Shine a Light as rewarding and easy for you as possible. We help with technical support, a registration website, event planning, sponsorships, securing media and much more! We also provide a toolkit with flashlights, fliers, handouts, pens and bracelets.
