Candlelighters children’s cancer charity was set up over 40 years ago by parents of children with cancer for families affected by childhood cancer. When a child is diagnosed with cancer, lives are turned upside down in an instant. Not just for the child but for their parents, siblings, family and friends. Priorities change and everyday concerns suddenly seem trivial. Getting well again can be a long and challenging journey, physically, emotionally and financially. Candlelighters provides support emotionally, financially and practically for families and will continue to provide the equipment, medical support and fund essential research into childhood cancer and leukaemia.
Candlelighters is developing a new support centre to help provide the support and help that is needed for their families across Yorkshire. The centre is based away from the hospital and the idea is to offer services ranging from counselling to group therapies and offer a completely new support system for our families.
