Help us welcome our new Executive Director, Sarah Breece. Over the last few months, Candlelighters For Children With Cancer has been searching for a new Executive Director. The Candlelighters staff banded together during this transitional time while the Board performed a thorough search to permanently fill this critical leadership role.Â We’re happy to announce that Sarah Breece has accepted the position of Executive Director, effective immediately.
Sarah brings over 13 years of non-profit development and leadership experience to the Executive Director role, along with incredible energy and focus. Most recently, Sarah has served as Candlelighters Director of Development, seeing the organization through the pandemic while building a new development program. Prior to Candlelighters, Sarah spent time working in the non-profit industry, most recently at the YMCA of Greater Seattle as the Director of Annual Giving. Sarah and her husband Brett live with their two dogs, Zeva and Ackley in Beaverton, OR. As a childhood cancer survivor herself, she is passionate about the Candlelighters mission, bringing community, programs, and resources to the entire family impacted by childhood cancer. She looks forward to stepping into her new role as Executive Director and continuing to connect the community to the amazing work accomplished by Candlelighters.
