This year we're forming a team to walk in the Candlelighters Fun Walk and I would love for you to support us! We're walking in honor of all the families who face childhood cancer. I know that Candlelighters makes a difference in the lives of childhood cancer families each and every day. My dad, my children's Po, was heartbroken by the children facing what he faced. We are walking in his honor, to do what we can for other families.
Many of you have supported Candleighters with us. Candlelighters is a local charity serving families facing childhood cancer who are being treated at the Texas Medical Center. Founded by families, Candlelighters programs and services are the direct result of the vision of those founding families and the experiences they shared. In that spirit, Camp CLIFF was developed by those families who started Candlelighters and recognized the need for “family time”.
The Fun Walk raises money for Candlelighters annual family camp – a get-a-way for the whole family. Many camps offer the child with cancer a getaway, but Candlelighers believes that it is very important for the whole family to come together away from the treatment facilities and their everyday hectic lives. Quality time as a family is essential in their struggle to beat the disease. The cost to send a camper to camp is $150 and this year they are planning on hosting 250 campers!
Thank you for supporting us and for helping all the children with cancer and their families that Candlelighters serves!
