Light Up a Life - Sunday, December 4, 2016

Hosted by the Auxiliary of Mission Hospital, the annual Light Up a Life tree lighting celebration is held to honor and remember friends, loved ones and caregivers.

Through this celebration Mission Hospital is able to enhance hospice and palliative care to include special services such as music therapy and massage, to expand the bereavement program and to sponsor care for those who are unable to pay for hospice services.

The event culminates in a moment of reflection as each person holds a votive candles in the darkened room. Guests are invited to place an ornament with a personal message on the tree. There are warm embraces, tears and smiles as guests remember their loved ones.
