“Shine a Light”
An evening to raise awareness and support for parents caring for children with special needs, critical, or chronic illnesses.
November 4, 2022 at 6:00 -8:30 pm
Highland Church of Christ
Featuring the Memphis premiere of the documentary “Unseen: How We’re Failing Parent Caregivers and Why It Matters.”
The Unseen documentary takes a raw, honest look at the parent caregiving experience. If caregivers are ever going to get the support and resources they deserve, they first have to be seen and heard. The Unseen documentary puts faces and stories to this issue to enable change for the caregivers in our community.
We will offer children’s programming for children: infant – 15 years. To take advantage of the children’s program, please purchase a ticket ($5 per family). Space will be limited and spots are first come, first served.
Join us after the film for a reception with light refreshments and a resource expo to meet our sponsors and community resource partners.
Thousands of Mid-South families are caregivers for children with life-limiting illnesses. The demands of daily life and chronic stress can negatively affect parent caregivers’ mental and physical well-being.
Resources to support these families are so limited that the majority of care is provided in the family home, by parents, guardians, and siblings. These families are “hidden” from society and the burdens they face physically and financially are overwhelming.
Spreading Sunshine is proud to host the “Shine a Light” evening to advocate for and support families. We are honored to partner with the producers of the award-winning documentary, “Unseen: How We are Failing Parent Caregivers and Why It Matters”.
