Your gift will not only Light up the Life of your loved one, it will help care for our patients and their loved ones this Christmas. 

Jan Pointon and her family are dedicating a light to beloved husband and father, Des. The family took part in Light up a Life in 2019 and 2020.

Speaking about the service, Jan said, “It was very comforting, and it was nice to remember with other people, although it still felt very personal. It was nice for us, knowing all those people were in the same boat. We made it a celebration of Des.” Read their story here
