2019 Tree of Hope Lighting Ceremony

Duke Cancer Patient Support Program invites you to join us for The Nancy Weaver Emerson 29th Annual Tree of Hope Lighting Ceremony. This inspirational event will be held on Thursday, December 5, at 5:30 p.m. at Duke Cancer Center, which is located 20 Duke Medicine Circle in Durham, North Carolina.

The evening includes a reception and short program in which the Light of Hope Honoree will be recognized. This year's event honors caregivers who often are taking on new-found responsibilities for a loved one while navigating the responsibilities associated with their own lives. 

"Caregivers perceive the pain of another. They step forward to provide compassionate support. They labor persistently, often beyond the limits of their own health." — Ben Weast, Medical Family Therapist

The program is followed by a candlelit procession to the Garden of Tranquility for the ceremonial lighting of The Nancy Weaver Emerson Tree of Hope. 

You are invited to purchase a Light of Hope to remember or honor someone who has made an indelible mark on your life. Each light comes with a tribute card. For more information, please visit Tribute Cards.

We look forward to seeing you. RSVP for this year's Tree of Hope celebration.
