For local families with childhood cancer

When a  child with is diagnosed with cancer, the impact on the whole family can be devastating and lonely. Each family member processes their fears, loneliness and grief differently. But families don't have to face childhood cancer alone. We give them the support and tools they need to face this difficult journey together. Your donation funds essential Candlelighters programs for local families, providing practical support, like emergency financial support, gas cards,  in-hospital meals, and scholarships. We also provide ways for families to connect -  with each other, and other families, through  family camp, support groups, a youth group,  and family activities. Through it all, Candlelighters families forge life-long bonds with other families facing the same thing. 

Watch the Tam Family's story, to learn what helped keep their family strong, every step of the way - from diagnosis, treatment and beyond.



With your gift, we will continue to helps support the WHOLE family facing childhood cancer.
