Bluebird Tree Lit to Honor Cancer Survivors

JACKSON, Tenn. – The West Tennessee Healthcare Foundation lit their Bluebird Tree, Monday afternoon.

Each year the tree is lit in remembrance of those who have been lost to cancer and in honor of those who have struggled with the disease. "For more than a decade, the lighting of the Bluebird Christmas Tree has become a holiday tradition. Every year we light the tree in remembrance of those we have lost and in honor of those loved ones still among us," said Sandra Atherton, Camp Bluebird Director.

Funds raised through the Bluebird Tree go to increase the endowment for Camp Bluebird. With an adequate endowment, more services can be provided to those in need of encouragement in the fight against cancer. Lights may be sponsored for $25 and a bluebird ornament for $100. Donations can be made online at or mailed to the Foundation at 620 Skyline Drive, Jackson, TN, 38301.
