Light Up a Life

Pete Moore Hospice House, 4010 County Farm Road

Please RSVP by November 15

Light Up a Life is Cascade Health’s annual tree-lighting, giving families and friends an opportunity to gather and honor the memory of those they’ve loved and lost.

We invite you to join us for this beautiful remembrance event whether your loved one was a Cascade Health patient or not. All who wish to memorialize someone during the holiday season are encouraged to participate. We will gather in the gardens for the candlelight memorial and read the names of those we wish to honor.

We will gladly read the names of those you would like to honor and provide a candle to light in their memory if you are able to attend the event. A suggested gift of $15 or more will keep a light on our tree shining throughout the month of December, celebrating the life of your loved one and helping Cascade Health meet the needs of hospice patients and their families all year long.

Please note that we will be recording video of the event. If you are unable to attend in person, you may view the video on this page after the event.

 

Brighten the Holidays With the Gift of Light

The holidays can be a particularly difficult time for people who are grieving the loss of a loved one. What is normally a time for celebration and joy can feel empty without the presence of those we hold dear.

Cascade Health has been hosting the Light Up a Life event for 19 years to provide an opportunity to come together with others who understand how you feel and take time to quietly honor the memory of those who have passed.

While it seems like such a simple act, the lighting of a candle or a tree can be a powerful experience. Light can represent hope, unity, remembrance, the soul, comfort and home. It can guide the way to understanding or acceptance and remind us that the memories of our loved ones lost are always with us, illuminating the darkness.

We hope that no matter your spiritual background, Light Up a Life will envelop you in a comforting glow and help you remember the light your loved one’s memories still bring to your life.
