Home Hospice Hosts "Light Up a Life"


SHERMAN,TX--- Home Hospice will be hosting their 30th annual "Light Up a Life" tree lighting ceremony tonight at Kelly Square. The event starts at 7 p.m.

"Light Up a Life" celebrates life and marks the beginning of the holiday season. Tonight's tree is decorated with paper doves and lights. Any community member who donates to "Light Up a Life" will receive a dove that they can dedicate in honor or memory of a loved one. 

All the money received from tonight's event will go towards the hospice patients.
These patients can not afford care and are in their final months of life.

"These donations pay for their physician visits, nursing visits, social work visits, aid visits and all their personal care and medications. All of the pieces are focused on keeping them comfortable  during that final stage of life," Home Hospice Executive Director Sherry Little said.

The need for donations is up 130% since 2011. Little says donations are crucial for the care they provide.
