Find a Shine a Light


We are thrilled to announce our 8th Annual Shine a Light on Lung Cancer! Because of you, Shine a Light is the largest coordinated awareness event for lung cancer in the United States. We anticipate 200 Shine a Lights taking place in healthcare facilities this November for Lung Cancer Awareness Month.

Shine a Light on Lung Cancer events are hosted by healthcare facilities. They signal to our community that you and your healthcare facility care about those living with lung cancer and their families. These educational events allow our community to learn about lung cancer advancements directly from your expert faculty and staff. They will also bring those newly diagnosed and their loved ones together with those long term survivors whose experiences and advice provide hope and a light at the end of the tunnel after diagnosis. 

Hosting a Shine a Light event means giving the lung cancer community access to your team in order to ask questions, learn about treatment options and clinical trials, and find out the great things underway for them at your facility. 

We encourage you to host an event in your facility. If you are interested in hosting contact Lanni,, who can help you get started and make your Shine a Light event a "go to" for your patients and their families and friends. 



About Shine a Light

Shine a Light on Lung Cancer events are hosted by healthcare facilities during the month of November as part of Lung Cancer Awareness Month activities. These events bring together those living with lung cancer, their families and the healthcare teams at hospitals across the country. 

Shine a Light events are educational events for the lung cancer community in your area. The program typically consists of speakers from your faculty who can share updates on treatment options, clinical trials and support programs and lung cancer survivors and caregivers whose stories provide perspective and hope to those dealing with a lung cancer diagnosis. Many also include a question and answer period so attendees can ask your experts any questions they may not be able to ask at appointments. 

Shine a Light events are also intended to honor all of those who are living with lung cancer and those we have lost to the disease. There are flashlights provided and each event has a moment of remembrance. Flashlights are turned on and we literally shine a light on those touched by lung cancer. Many times there are honor walls or balloon launches as well. We encourage those who host a Shine a Light event to get creative! 

We provide the tools and materials to make it as easy as possible for you to make you Shine a Light successful. Please consider hosting a Shine a Light event in your hospital or healthcare facility this November. To get started, contact Lanni, or 202-742-1421.
