I am a mother of a cancer survivor, I am passionate about this cause because of all the wonderful things Candlelighters does for the families. Many do not understand the struggles and sacrifices that come with having a child with cancer. Candlelighters helps ease these problems and helps families understand that they are not alone. Cancer is something that never comes with a warning and most of these families are caught off guard and not only does cancer take a toll on someone mentally and physically but sometimes it takes a heavy toll on finances. Having the community support this cause is important because not only will you be helping families that are already in a terrible situation but you never know if someone you love or know may need these services one day.
