Childhood Cancer Awareness Month
Each September, we join other childhood cancer organizations for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month to increase awareness and raise funds for research, prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and cures. This September we invite everyone to tell your story, share a story, advocate and fundraise…Together, we will make a difference to local kids and families facing childhood cancer. Help us raise $25,000 for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month!
Who is Candlelighters?
We’re a non-profit serving the local childhood cancer community from diagnosis to treatment and beyond. Candlelighters helps families with basic needs and beyond, providing ways to connect with other families who understand what it’s like to have a child with cancer. With the help of emergency financial assistance, monthly family activities, in-hospital meals and a family camp, our goal is to ensure that families have the resources and connections they need to navigate childhood cancer together.
