This year I am walking in the Candlelighters Fun Walk again and I would love for you to support me! I am walking in honor of the Torres family who faced childhood cancer. I know that Candlelighters makes a difference in the lives of childhood cancer families each and every day.
As the Candlelighters Fun Walk home page states, Candlelighters serves children with cancer and their families receiving treatment in the Texas Medical Center and provides all of its services and programs at NO COST to these families. Funds raised from the Fun Walk help fund all of Candlelighters programs and services provided daily for childhood cancer families; including: hospital parking assistance, emotional support from families who have survived childhood cancer, meal passes, groceries, gas cards, and more! These programs and services are provided to any and all families with a child who has received a cancer diagnosis. As cancer affects the entire family, all of our programs and services include the entire family.
This year, with COVID-19 it is even more imperative that families receive support. The world has slowed down, but cancer has not. Many families have lost their jobs due to the global pandemic and have become even more restricted on funds.
Thank you for supporting me and for helping all the children with cancer and their families that Candlelighters serves!
