Ellen O'Neal Team

My husband Stan and I are sponsoring a Fun Walk Team this year, as we do every year, in memory of our daughter, Ellen, who died of brain cancer at the age of 7 in 2001.  Candlelighters provided tremendous support to our family throughout Ellen's treatment, so we are committed to raising funds for Candlelighters to help other families of children with cancer.  Please consider contributing to Candlelighters on behalf of the Ellen O'Neal Team.  You may also walk with our team at the Fun Walk on September 11th at Terry Hershey Park.  

The Fun Walk raises money for Candlelighters services and programs whi are offered FREE to children with cancer and their families. This past year looked quite different than most for childhood cancer families, and while the world is slowly getting back to "normal" - Candlelighters must continue to put the immunosuppressed first and has continued to adapt their programs and services to reach families of children with cancer in a safe space in 2021.

This year, funds will be used to provide childhood cancer families with Emotional Support, Gas & Grocery Cards, Memorial Funds, Bell Ringing Celebrations and Virtual Camp CLIFF!

Thank you for supporting the Ellen O'Neal Team and for helping all the children with cancer and their families served by Candlelighters!
