Join us in spreading hope across the country, honoring those who have been touched by cancer, and remembering those lost. We invite you to light a virtual candle and share a special message in honor of a loved one.  

We also hope you will consider donating to the American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network’s 11th annual Lights of Hope event, being virtually hosted on Saturday, September 18 at 4 p.m. EDT. Since 2015, The Links, Incorporated and the American Cancer Society have worked together to address cancer disparities and drive health equity in all communities touched by cancer. The Lights of Hope livestream will highlight stories of loved ones who have fought cancer and survived, and remember those who lost the battle.
