Mission Statement

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.

We are deeply committed to making every effort to provide stability to our families throughout their child’s treatment period, no matter how long that may last, so that no family and no child will fight cancer alone.

Description

Our agency offers emergency financial assistance, transportation, scholarships, caregiver workshops, counseling, summer oncology camps, and many other services and activities for our children and their families. We also offer respite training to caregivers, financial literacy training and college assistance to survivors. Financial support is provided for as long as a child is in treatment (usually three years) and for six months after to ensure family returns to normalcy.
