Light Up A Life is an annual tradition celebrated throughout the United States to increase awareness and support of hospice care. The Christmas tree lighting ceremony at Adventist Health Glendale is a beautiful and meaningful way to pay tribute to this tradition, honor those we love and those who have passed on, and welcome the holiday season.
