Annual Candle Lighting Ceremony
September 25, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. To honor and remember local children and their families affected by childhood cancer, a candle lighting Ceremony is held each year on the front lawn of Banner University Medical Center Tucson. Candlelighters CCFSA provides the candles and refreshments. This is a child friendly event. This year we will honor the support staff in the Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Clinic at Banner. In the case of inclement weather we will move to the medical school plaza just south of the hospital entrance on the same date.
September is also Sickle Cell Awareness Month. Highlighting and recognition of the challenges a family faces with an SCD diagnosis are included in this ceremony.
