Celebrate a life

Celebrate a Life at Christmas gives you the opportunity to remember a loved one, or support someone living with lung cancer.

For most of us, Christmas is a wonderful time of year, but it can also be when we most deeply feel the loss of someone special. It can hard to face those feelings on your own, just as it can be difficult to deal with the emotional impact of living with lung cancer or undergoing treatment.

This is why we created our Celebrate A Life at Christmas appeal to provide a meaningful way to pay tribute to our loved ones.

We’d like to invite you to dedicate a light on our Celebrate A Life Christmas tree. Your light can be to remember somebody you miss or to support someone with lung cancer. Each light will shine brightly, symbolising hope and love.

Everyone who dedicates a star will also receive two Celebrate a Life baubles for you to personalise. If you return one to us, your bauble will hang with pride on one of the trees at our Celebrate a Life services.

This year we are having two Celebrate a Life services in Liverpool and Glasgow. These are emotional, rewarding and uplifting occasions, with songs, music, readings and the true spirit of Christmas bringing us all closer together.

I was asked to read a poem at the Celebrate A Life service. It gave me the chance to process the events of that year. Sat around me were people who lost someone near and dear and it was coming to that time of year when we truly notice the loved ones that are missing. The Celebrate a Life service helped me through the first Christmas without my dad. It is a brilliant way of remembering and truly celebrating the loved ones we have lost to lung cancer.
