The Southcoast Health Cancer Center will host the 10th Annual Shine a Light on Lung Cancer vigil on November 29 at 6 p.m. at 206 Mill Road in Fairhaven.

Southcoast Health joins 200 other communities across the country to host this event as part of a national movement created by the Lung Cancer Alliance (LCA). It provides hope, inspiration and support to the thousands who are diagnosed with lung cancer. Lung cancer patients, survivors, family members, caregivers and the community are invited to join Southcoast Health for this very special vigil.

Sports Director for Fox Providence/Channel 12 Yianni Kourakis will serve as the emcee for the event, and there will be performances by the Dartmouth High School Harmonix. The speaking program will also include personal stories from survivors and lung cancer experts. At the end of the speaking program, the exterior of the cancer center will be lit in purple lights, and guests will illuminate glow sticks in honor of survivors and in memory of those who have passed.

This free event is open to the public. Light refreshments will be served and free bus transportation will be provided by Whaling City Transit. Registration is required. Visit or call 877-822-2732 to RSVP.
