Candlelighters, NYC is an amazing non profit run by Barbara Zobian. Barbara is dedicated to helping families in New York City get through the difficult times when a child is diagnosed with cancer. We came to NYC to get treatment at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center for his Stage IV Neuroblastoma in October of 2007 and Barbara really helped us out in very practical ways. She throws amazing parties that the kids LOVE and it is a great way for the kids to get away from the "hospital life" and do really fun activities in Manhattan! http://www.candlelightersnyc.org

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

amazingly generous and dedicated to helping families that are coping with a child with cancer.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

help families afford living in NYC while getting treatment for their child as well as make brighter days for those kids going through treatments.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
