This is a free event to host and to attend! If you are interested in hosting contact Kristen,, who can help you get started and make your Shine a Light the premier lung cancer event in your community. 

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 groundbreaking advances for survival. You will be inspired by your time with lung cancer survivors and their families. And we hope all in attendance will realize they are not alone and there are people who care. 

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 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 are making a difference.



This is the 7th 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 5th as part of Lung Cancer Awareness Month. Nearly 300 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.
