CHD Cancer House of Hope is delighted to host their annual Luminaria in a new location this year! We hope you will join us for an evening of beauty, inspiration, community and hope, where hundreds of candles light the way to celebrate the lives of those affected by cancer. Special thanks go to Mayor William Reichelt and the Town of West Springfield for their support in making it possible to go forward with the Luminaria in a safe manner.

Cancer House of Hope has been a mainstay in the community, providing counseling support, healing therapies and wellness programs for all whose lives have been affected by cancer. We have been able to adapt over 90% of our services virtually throughout the pandemic, and have even expanded new offerings to stay connected during this challenging time. From car-side wig consult and fitting services to virtual yoga classes, crisis counseling by phone and much more, we are here to serve anyone who needs us!

In addition to the sale of luminary bags and sponsorship opportunities, we are very pleased to feature the new Luminaria At Home Kit this year! The kit will afford participants the opportunity to light a candle from the comfort of home and includes a special keepsake candle holder. To print out and mail in a sponsorship, luminary bag order or Luminaria At Home Kit order, you can access those forms below:
