ABOUT CANDLELIGHTERS: The independent charity (501c3) was established over twenty– eight years ago and continues to be the primary provider of essential programs and services which help families of children with cancer and blood disorders. We provide services to Lee, Collier, Hendry, Glades and Charlotte Counties. The Candlelighters understand parents of children with cancer are often young with limited income. They must juggle home, work and the needs of other children in the household as well as be available to the newly diagnosed child for hospital and doctor visits. This is why the services we provide are available at no cost to the families. Candlelighters is a special organization that plays a critical role in each families life. To hear a parent say how much their family enjoyed an event where they could talk to other parents or for a child who months later recalls sitting in the grandstands at a baseball game, it helps us to realize Candlelighters IS a glimmer of hope among the uncertainty.
