The hospital sells lights on its Christmas tree with the proceeds helping to off-set the cost of educational and support programs for cancer patients and their families.
Monday night’s event began with a special tree lighting ceremony, and included prayers, speeches, and music.
Sisters of Providence CEO, Daniel Moen says, “Well this is a nice thing to do, for not only patients and families, for survivors and families, but also to remember those who have passed on. So it’s a real moment of remembrance for those family members and it’s a way to support cancer care going forward, which is very important to those folks as well.”
You can dedicate one light for $10, four for $35 or six for $50 in the Mercy Medical Center lobby.
