Cancer has been the leading cause of death in Iredell County for over a decade. To support those fighting, remember lives lost, and celebrate battles won, the Iredell Health Foundation is hosting its first annual Lights of Love, benefitting the Cancer Patient Support Fund for Iredell Health System. Proceeds from Lights of Love will assist anyone undergoing treatment and needing help with transportation, lodging, support group activities, and/or discretionary support.
There will be two Lights of Love events, one in Mooresville and one in Statesville. Lights of Love in Mooresville will take place from 6 – 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 7, at Iredell Mooresville Hospital (653 Bluefield Road). The event will feature music, refreshments, lighting of the Tree of Love, pictures with Santa, and other children’s activities.
The Lights of Love in Statesville will occur the following day on Thursday, Dec. 8, from 6 – 8 p.m., at Iredell Memorial Hospital (557 Brookdale Drive). Lights of Love in Statesville will feature music, refreshments, and the lighting of the Tree of Love.
Both programs will include a cancer survivor speaker and an honorary family that will “light-up” the Mooresville and Statesville campuses. This is a free event. For more details click here, email the firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 704-878-7669.
