We have a 2 yr. old daughter w/ active treatment for Leukemia, ALL. The educational and emotional support that our family have received from DC Candlelighters in the past year has been beyond our expectactions. Thanks to them our family has adjusted well to many changes that living w/ a child w/ cancer brings along. From learning how to properly feed our little one to how and what questions to ask at our oncology appts. They have also blessed us by helping us pay some bills that would otherwise not being paid on time. For their tremendous help and support we think DC Candlelighters deserve all the help they can get to keep helping people like us. Thank you so much!!!
