The main purpose of the lighthouse is to promote early cancer detection and navigate people to various resources that identify cancer signs and symptoms and where to go for help.  If detected early, cancer could be diagnosed and treated with hope for survivorship and an eventual cure.

THIS LIGHTHOUSE IS THE FIRST ONE IN THE WORLD THAT IS EXCLUSIVELY DEDICATED FOR USE IN THE FIGHT AGAINST CANCER.
