About Candlelighters

Candlelighters is dedicated to enriching the lives of children who have cancer by providing hope, support, encouragement, advocacy and education to those children, their families, and the community at large. Below are some of the services we provide our community. These programs are provided through donations from people like you!

Financial Assistance

Family members must find ways to cope with the suffering and possible loss of their loved one, and in most cases suffer severe financial impact. Candlelighters has long been devoted to serving the needs and improving the quality of life for children diagnosed with cancer and their family members.

Therapeutic/Emotional Services

A childhood cancer diagnosis and its aftermath can be devastating for the child and his/her entire family, but medical insurance does not always cover the cost of counseling. Candlelighters will help families cope with psychological burdens by offering service and support for professional therapy services.

Social/Recreation Services

The need for quality, summer, recreational programs for children with cancer and their siblings continues to grow. Our summer camps strive to bring together kids undergoing similar struggles in hopes of strengthening, uniting, and overcoming obstacles.

Additional Info on Pediatric Cancer

Candlelighters ensures that additional information is provided for families going through pediatric cancer.
