Having a critically ill child can be a tremendous financial burden. Candlelighters covers all parking costs during treatment stays. For cancer patients and survivors, offers a post-secondary education bursary. When your child is literally fighting for their life, often the financial and socio-economic impact on your family can be devastating.
Candlelighters understand that a cancer diagnosis is an overwhelming experience. A childhood cancer diagnosis can be devastating for a family. Support is crucial for not just the young patient but for parents and siblings as well. Candlelighters offers a number of support programs so families know they aren’t alone on the journey.
Kids learn when they feel good. And for young cancer patients, a conventional school classroom is often not an option. CyberKids provides an iPad to all newly diagnosed children. Not only do these devices help these children keep up academically, they often provide much-needed distraction while going through medical procedures and treatment.
Survivorship is most often the longest part of the childhood cancer journey. Candlelighters provides the following support programs to survivors of childhood cancer to meet the ongoing needs: YSI - Youth Survivor Initiative, Post-Secondary Equipment Support & Survivor Counselling.
