Review for CANDLELIGHTERS CHILDHOOD CANCER FOUNDATION OF THE DC METRO AREA, Merrifield, VA, USA
DC Candlelighters is a fabulous organization! They provide educational resources on childhood cancer issues in the form of books and parent meetings. A lot of the Board members have all either had a child diagnosed with cancer, or they work in the pediatric oncology profession. They are willing to talk to newly diagnosed families and even stop by Fairfax Hospital with treats once a month and meet with inpatient families and make themselves available to anyone who needs to talk.
They also provide fun activities for families like the annual Mother/Daughter Spa Night, Father/Son Night, Halloween Party, Bingo Night, and the Holiday party.
They also provide financial assistance to families in need who are in treatment. And best of all, every single dollar raised goes right back to the families. They have no paid staff - it's an all-volunteer organization.
If you are a family in need of support, be sure and contact them. If you would like to volunteer, we would love to have you! Just email DCCandlelighters@Gmail.com.
