Light Up a Life

Light Up a Life

Remembering Those Who Brightened Our World

Every year, Cascade Health is honored to host our Light Up a Life ceremony. This event celebrates and remembers family members and loved ones who received care at both the Pete Moore Hospice House and our in-home hospice program. With a holiday tree lighting, the reading of names and songs, Light Up a Life creates a living memory of the people who have touched so many lives.

This year, in order to keep visitors and staff safe due to COVID-19, Light Up a Life was transitioned to an online event.

Deena Wolfe, Cascade Health’s bereavement coordinator, hosted the 2020 Light Up a Life program and was joined by Alicia Peacor, assistant manager of the Pete Moore Hospice House, Chelsie Wong, hospice volunteer coordinator and Heather McGill, hospice social worker to read more than 200 names. The presentation also included a slide show of personal photos, poems, and songs performed by the Eugene Threshold Singers – a group of caring women who provide their gift of song to the sick and dying throughout our community.

Below is the full 2020 Light Up a Life video celebration.
