The Metropolis Lighthouse pin was made by Pins By Frank in 2014 at the request of Rudy Bess, Founding Director of the Hope Light House Foundation. The pin is an outstanding replica of the Light house located in Metropolis, Illinois-yes also known as the home of Superman & Lois Lane!
“The lighthouse was dedicated to fight against all cancer on Nov 5, 2014. It stands 30 feet tall and consists of a white conical shaped, reinforced steel tower beneath a teal daymarkband and black lantern room with a white-light flashing beacon. It overlooks the Ohio River in Metropolis, Illinois. The white tower represents the fight against lung cancer, the teal daymarkband represents the fight against ovarian cancer, the black lantern room is symbolic of a cancer patient’s dark journey and the white light represents Hope that all cancer patients will be cancer survivors and lead full and active lives. “
