(Englewood, NJ, December 6, 2013) – Englewood Hospital and Medical Center (EHMC) recently held its first annual “Shine a Light on Lung Cancer” vigil to raise awareness about the importance of early detection and to provide support to those impacted by the disease.

During the vigil, physicians, staff members, patients and survivors shared their personal stories followed by a moment of silence.  Attendees raised lighted glow sticks while music played, allowing everyone time to reflect on their journey and how the spirit of hope and compassion brought them together.

Afterwards, participants enjoyed complimentary refreshments and had an opportunity to visit with one another.
