Family Activities

We help families with childhood cancer connect.

Candlelighters families are part of a close-knit community where, together, they are able to put aside challenges and just be with other families who get it. As a result, many have made lifelong friends built on countless hours of camaraderie.

Candlelighters family activities are offered throughout our chapters, across Oregon and SW Washington, at no cost to families. Subscribe to our quarterly Family Connections newsletter using the form below to get our latest news and events delivered to your inbox.
