When you or someone you love hears the words "you have cancer"…It's one of the darkest moments in your life.



The light and warmth we generate delivers hope in time of despair, community in place of loneliness, and life-saving RESEARCH & SUPPORT for cancer patients and their families.


We are taking steps to end cancer. WE LIGHT THE NIGHT.
