I want to be a part of something that is bigger than I am, that is bigger than my community.

I want to be a part of something on a grander scale.

I want to make a difference where I live but I also want to be a part of something that connects me to the entire nation.

How about kicking cancer’s butt?

Sounds good, but I missed the Relay for Life.

No problem. You can be a part of this, remember a loved one, and be connected to so many others across the country.


What is this?

It is the American Cancer Society’s Lights of Hope. Read more…

You may have heard the short name for this: ACS CAN. Read more… or watch a short video.

From a modest beginning in 2011 of just 1,200 illuminated bags with the names of someone who had cancer to 14,000 luminaries last year, this effort has taken hold in America. It is just the right time to become a part of what will surely change the quality of life in our modern world.

If you live in western Oklahoma and would like someone who you know and love to be represented at the nation’s capitol on 16 September 2014, then now is the time to talk to the representative of the High Plains region.

That person is Desarae Simmons of Burns Flat. She will take your Lights of Hope bag to the capitol this September and position it with thousands of others on the United States Capitol grounds.

A $10 donation is requested for each bag. If you get your bag in person, you may write the name of the person remembered or honored and decorate the bag as you desire.

If you can’t meet with Desarae but would still like to be a part of this, just follow this link…

If you have questions just give Des a call at 580 774 8051 or follow this link to send her an email.

Support those who gather in our nation’s capitol this September by making a contribution now. What begins here goes beyond our nation. Curing cancer helps make a better world.
