(BLOOMINGTON) - The 2017 "Light Up A Life" campaign, now in its 26th year of helping area residents, is currently accepting donations through the end of November. "Light Up A Life" gifts, directly support meaningful care for hospice patients both at the IU Health Hospice House and in the communities hospice serves.

Each year, this meaningful campaign offers a way to honor, celebrate and remember special individuals throughout the holiday season while also providing support to patients with life-limiting illnesses. When someone participates with a donation to "Light Up A Life," a light is placed on the annual Hospice Tree and the names are listed on an adjacent lighted-display board on the Monroe County Courthouse grounds.

IU Health Hospice Bloomington staff and volunteers have lovingly cared for patients in South Central Indiana for more than 30 years. Hospice professionals and volunteers work alongside family caregivers to deliver the highest level of physical comfort and care at the end of life's journey.

As the only local not-for- profit hospice in the area, IU Health Hospice Bloomington is committed to their promise of not turning anyone away due to inability to pay. Terri Shedd, Regional Director, IU Health Hospice of South Central Indiana explains, "Thanks to generous donors to hospice care and campaigns like "Light Up A Life," we are able to provide care that all patients deserve."

Those interested in participating in the "Light Up A Life" campaign may make a donation by calling the Bloomington Hospital Foundation at (812) 353-9528 or by visiting, clicking on the "Give Now" button and selecting Light Up A Life from the "Designation" drop down menu. In the comments section, please include the information about the loved one being honored.

Shedd invites everyone in the community to participate in the lighting of the Hospice Tree at 7 p.m. on the Friday after Thanksgiving on the Courthouse lawn as part of the city's annual Canopy of Lights.
