Proceeds benefit Candlelighters for Children with Cancer
The impacts of childhood cancer across Oregon and SW Washington are staggering:
Over 200 local children are diagnosed with cancer each year
Over 1,000 local children are in treatment at any given time
75.7% of families with a child battling cancer have at least one parent who needs to cut back on work or stop working all together.
The average # of years for pediatric cancer treatment is 3
Since 1977, Candlelighters has supported more than 85,000 family members and is still the only local organization that provides for the ENTIRE family throughout the life long journey of childhood cancer. Families depend on Candlelighters to provide comfort in the hospitals through catered family meals, a 24/7 food pantry, and a weekly snack cart. Others rely on Candlelighters for monthly family experiences, emergency financial funding, Candlelighters Family Camp and bereavement support. And, they never charge families a dime—ever!
