Shine a Light on Lung Cancer

Shine a Light on Lung Cancer is the largest coordinated lung cancer awareness event in the United States. Hosted by healthcare facilities during Lung Cancer Awareness Month (November), Shine a Light events bring together survivors, caregivers, and loved ones to learn about the latest research and treatment options from their local healthcare providers, and provide the opportunity to meet and support each other by sharing their personal stories.

Each November, approximately 200 separate Shine a Light events are held around the country to raise lung cancer awareness and give tangible hope to the millions living with and at risk for the disease.
