Virtual Candle Lighting Ceremony – Recap

Thank you to everyone who joined us for our Virtual Candle Lighting Ceremony on Sunday evening, where we lit a candle in honor of cancer survivors and caregivers and in memory of those who have courageously faced cancer and are no longer with us.

While we were unable to host our annual Candle Lighting Ceremony at our Annual Cancer Survivors Day Luncheon, we were honored to still be able to gather with our community to celebrate this incredible CanCare tradition in honor of National Cancer Survivors Day.

Thank you to our incredible ceremony speakers who led this special and meaningful event.

Candle of Hope Cards

$10 per card

Our Candle Lighting Ceremony is the highlight of our luncheon as candles are lit in honor of cancer survivors and caregivers or in memory of those who have courageously faced cancer and are no longer with us. While we are not able to host the luncheon this year due to COVID-19, now more than ever, we would like to remind our cancer community that they are on our minds. For each $10 tribute donation, CanCare will mail a Candle of Hope acknowledgement card to those being honored or to the appropriate relative or friend. All honorees will also be listed on our luncheon website page.

Thank you for your incredible support.
