Let's Shine A Light on Lung Cancer November 14!

Lurie Cancer Center shines a light

On Thursday, November 14, people impacted by lung cancer around the world will join together for the 5th Annual Shine a Light on Lung Cancer Vigil. Northwestern Medicine and the Lurie Cancer Center, in partnership with the Lung Cancer Alliance, are holding a “Virtual Vigil”; creating a photo album to connect newly-diagnosed lung cancer patients, long-term survivors, caregivers and healthcare professionals.

Join us! Take a photo or video holding a glow stick, a sign — or a light of your own — and share it online or via Social Media. There are many simple ways to participate.  Watch this video or see the suggestions below for details.
