I’m so excited to be walking for Candlelighters this year!
Candlelighters is an organization that provides daily services for childhood cancer families and the Fun Walk raises money for those services and programs which are offered FREE to children with cancer and their families.
Here's what Fun Walk donations will be used toward this year:
1. Hospital Parking Assistance - Candlelighters has still been able to provide hospital parking financial assistance to families digitally
2. Emotional Support - families more than ever before are nervous to leave their homes, feeling isolated, and being torn apart (hospital visitor restrictions). Our weekly support group meetings have grown, and Candlelighters Parent Consultants are working around the clock to check-in with our families needs.
3. Gas Cards & Grocery Cards - these have been Candlelighters top request throughout the COVID-19 crisis as families more than ever are strapped for basic needs thanks to furloughs and layoffs.
4. Memorial Funds - cancer hasn't quit unfortunately. Children are still being diagnosed and gaining their angel wings. Candlelighters provides financial assistance for families to hold memorial services for their children.
Thank you for supporting my efforts for this amazing organization. Whatever you can give, (even $5), thank you for helping all the children with cancer and their families that Candlelighters serves!
