Northside Hospital Foundation is lighting up our communities with the #lightsforgood campaign

Northside Hospital Foundation’s #lightsforgood campaign – is not your ordinary end of the year holiday giving.

The Northside Hospital Foundation (NSHF) is lighting up the night with the #lightsforgood campaign this holiday season to make a difference in the lives of thousands of people right here in our community. Community members have the opportunity to make a one-time donation or to start an online fundraiser to encourage family and friends to purchase symbolic lights. Donations represent symbolic lights on the holiday trees that top the Northside Hospital campuses.

Donors and fundraisers have the option to support the Northside Cancer Institute, Miracle Babies Program, Perinatal Bereavement Fund (H.E.A.R.T Strings) or an area of greatest need. Your gift to the #lightsforgood campaign helps provide rides to treatment for cancer patients, mammograms for underinsured women, transportation for parents of preemie babies in the NICU, perinatal bereavement support and much more.

I try to imagine being in the shoes of patients, experiencing their struggles and learning how I can make someone’s road to healing a bit better,” Delane Cope, Northside Hospital Foundation Manager, said. “#Lights for good is about illuminating these stories, needs and simple ways that we all can be a part of supporting something bigger this holiday season!”

Purchase a #lightforgood or start a fundraising campaign to celebrate someone who has survived, support someone who is fighting, honor someone who has had a major impact in your life or remember someone who is no longer with us.

Last year, the generosity of supporters like you provided:

  • Rides to treatment for more than 2,750 cancer patients in our community
  • Mammograms for more than 1,300 underinsured women in our community
  • Bereavement support and resources for more than 250 families experiencing infant loss
  • Transportation assistance and support for more than 130 families to be able to visit their critically ill newborn living in the Neonatal Intensive Care Nurses
