Mission Viejo, CA – The 21st Annual Light Up a Life tree lighting celebration raised more
than $25,000 in December. The funds will support hospice and palliative
care services at Mission Hospital.
This beloved celebration invites family members and friends to place an
ornament on the Mission Hospital Tree of Lights in honor or memory of
a friend, loved one or caregiver. The event included beautiful harp music
provided by the Orange County Harp Troupe, coordinated by Mission Hospital
physician, Dr. Hitome Momose, and vocals by Mission Hospital nurses Marne
Andersen and Stephanie Salgado.
Mission’s Palliative Care program serves patients, and their families,
who are faced with serious illnesses that require pain management and
symptom control often related to cancer, cardiovascular issues or other
complex, chronic conditions.
Tribute gifts are accepted throughout the year. Please visit
