Here for Hope in September
Sunset Sips Hawaii
September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month


A question we ask each day is: How does our community spark hope in the face of childhood cancer? A stuffed animal to provide comfort at the beginning of treatment? New friends at Candlelighters Family Camp? It could be as simple as a heating bill paid, or knowing that tears of grief are felt and understood. No matter what we are facing, we are all here for hope. Read more for ways to get involved during September, Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, and sustain hope throughout the year.
