Light Up a Life
Light Up a Life
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 again in 2022 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.
In 2021, we were honored to read the names of loved ones from our community and heartened to see so many points of light as their families and friends lit candles in their honor. We will keep the light on our tree shining throughout the month of December, celebrating the life of your loved ones and honor them by continuing to meet the needs of other hospice patients and their families all year long.
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.
The memorial event takes place outdoors, so please dress for the elements. Parking is available along the northeast side of County Farm Road and at First Baptist Church. Please do not park in the Pete Moore Hospice House lot, as these spaces are reserved for patient care providers and families.
