National Commemorative Candle Lighting is an annual event sponsored by the Alzheimer's Foundation of America to remember and honor Americans who have been or will be affected by Alzheimer's disease or related illnesses. It is held each November in recognition of National Alzheimer's Disease Awareness Month. Local organizations hold inspirational ceremonies in their communities during one weekend, uniting individuals from coast to coast as they light "candles of care."
