Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation Download

00:23 Download September 8th, 2020

Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation of Nevada (Candlelighters) was chartered in 1978 by two families, each of whom had a child being treated for cancer. With little to no resources to help them navigate the world of childhood cancer, they came together to create a network of support for families affected by the disease. They believed that families could find strength, knowledge, and comfort by banding together during their most difficult times. They wanted to use their experience to lessen the burden of those they knew would follow. Since that time, thousands of children in Nevada have been diagnosed with cancer.

To learn more about Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation, visit candlelightersnv.org.

Today, Candlelighters maintains a full-time office with professional staff focusing on three main areas of support: emotionalquality of life, and financial assistance. Candlelighters serves approximately 125 families monthly and as many as 600 children (both siblings and diagnosed children) throughout the year.

In this episode, Candlelighter’s CEO Kimberly Kindig elaborates on the three main areas of support, and fills us in on this year’s annual Superhero 5k, coming up on September 19th through September 25. Visit candlelightersnv.org or call 702-737-1919 for more information, registration and volunteer and participation opportunities.
