Candlelighters for Children with Cancer is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to provide support, education, and advocacy to families whose lives have been affected by childhood cancer. Established in Oregon in 1977, Candlelighters provides services to families in Oregon and Southwest Washington including chapters in Portland, Eugene, Roseburg, Medford, and in the near future, Bend.
Candlelighters prides itself in providing multi-faceted frontline support to families throughout the different stages of pediatric cancer: initial diagnoses, treatment, post-treatment, and even bereavement support. We are able to offer our members a wide array of effective support services because our board of directors and active volunteers represent the many faces of childhood cancer providing knowledge, experience and support to families in need.
