2023 Lights of Hope

The Animal Medical Center of Seattle is excited to be a sponsor again for the 2023 Lights of Hope, an American Cancer Society Cancer Action Network (ACS CAN) event that lights up over 50,000 bags. These bags include touching messages of support, encouragement, and remembrance for those who have fought cancer, been a caregiver, or lost a loved one. We are honored to help memorialize the people and pets in our lives who have battled with cancer. A good reminder that cancer research funding to find breakthrough treatments is important for our best furry friends AND people. Our hospital staff created some Lights of Hope bags, which are currently being displayed in the front window of our oncology building before they go to Washington DC on September 19th.
