We are walking in the Candlelighters Fun Walk and I would love for you to support us! We are walking in honor of all the families who face childhood cancer, including our own. Candlelighters makes a difference in the lives of childhood cancer families each and every day--we know because we experienced it firsthand.
The Fun Walk raises money for Candlelighters annual family camp – a get-a-way for the whole family. Many camps in Houston offer the child with cancer a getaway, but Candlelighers believes that it is very important for the whole family to come together away from the treatment facilities and their everyday hectic lives. Quality time as a family is essential in their struggle to beat the disease. The cost to send a camper to camp is approximately $200 and this year they are planning on hosting 250 campers!
Even if the Covid-19 pandemic causes the camp to be cancelled, Candlelighters provides numerous other services to cancer families--from adopt-a-family for Christmas and a fall carnival to the ever-so-appreciated vouchers to help pay for expensive Medical Center parking. Cancer and its treatment doesn't stop for the pandemic, and neither does Candlelighters.
Thank you for supporting us and for helping all the children with cancer and their families that Candlelighters serves!
