Lights of Love

Help brighten the lives of cancer patients throughout Southwest Georgia

Hope is believing there is light beyond the darkness.

Once again, hope will shine brightly this holiday season at Phoebe Cancer Center in Albany, Phoebe Sumter Medical Center, and Phoebe Worth Medical Center as each campus pays tribute to local cancer patients and their families with their own special Lights of Love tree. Lights will be lit in the thousands in honor and memory of loved ones, and donations to the beloved holiday event will benefit oncology patients receiving treatments at the three locations. ...learn more

Lights of Love firsts

  • Lights of Love in 1983 was the first public fundraising event in the 72-year history of Phoebe.
  • Approximately 1,200 lights were used to decorate the first 30-foot, Australian pine tree.
  • Mrs. Sheila Harvin, of Enterprise, Ala., an oncology patient, was the first tree lighter.
  • More than $16,800 was contributed at the first tree lighting ceremony.

Since its inception, Lights of Love donations have surpassed the $1 million mark, providing special services and amenities to cancer patients and their families right here in our own community.
