Candlelighters of Brevard is dedicated to children with cancer and their families by offering emotional support and financial assistance.
For 25 years, Candlelighters has served over 260 families battling childhood cancer in Brevard County. Because there are no pediatric oncologists in Brevard, 100% of their families must travel out of the county to seek medical care. Each year, Candlelighter families drive more than 350,000 miles to treatment centers; spend more than 2,400 days at clinic and in-patient visits; and more than 200 days away from home.
Grants from the endowment fund will be used to provide critical programs and services in helping families survive the physical, psychological and practical hardships of childhood cancer.
(Suggested minimum: $500)
