One of the most inspirational moments for us at Candlelighters is the Walk of Hope. It’s a celebration of those who have fought and survived. It’s a remembrance of those who have lost their battle. And it’s a declaration of hope for those who are now fighting their battle.
Childhood cancer families love our camps. Volunteer to be a camp counselor and enjoy a weekend of fun and special memories as Camp of the Tall Pines consists of 220 acres of beautiful mountain property in by the Lincoln National Forest located near Cloudcroft, New Mexico.
Candlelighters has long been devoted to serving the needs and improving the quality of life for children diagnosed with cancer and their family members. These services address the financial strain a family endures as a consequence of the diagnosis.
A childhood cancer diagnosis can impact every family member. We offer caregiver sessions, workshops, emotional support, play-based healing, and teen support groups to teach coping skills for all members of the family.
We offer enriching experiences which lead to healthy personal development. These activities promote acquiring new skills, establishing a network of support, and enhancing overall quality of life.
A cancer diagnosis presents many questions. Candlelighters provides access to additional information for families going through pediatric cancer.
On any given day, 100 tons of clothing and shoes is dumped at the landfill. Support Candlelighter’s mission of helping families continue to fight childhood cancer while reducing the garbage in the landfills. Lookout for our large, yellow clothing donation bins at the city’s five Citizen Collection Stations or any of other locations.
