Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital and the Junior Woman’s Club of Albany will be celebrating the 28th “Lights of Love” ceremony at 7 p.m. Monday, Dec. 12, in the main lobby of the hospital.
“Lights of Love” is an annual tree lighting ceremony that gives the community an opportunity to honor or remember their loved ones while giving a special gift to cancer patients and their families. Cancer Survivor David Campbell has been chosen as this year’s tree lighter.
This year’s donations will benefit all cancer patients in need of counseling, education and resource materials, as well as help to create a place to find solace and peace in the midst of their challenging health situations. The money donated this year will furnish and provide a private counseling area, a resource library in the Phoebe Cancer Center, where patients and family members can read, listen to, or check out resource materials to help them through their journey with cancer, and a meditation room for patients and guests to visit when they need a place to pray or find solitude. Lights of Love will support these specific needs.
