Candlelighters Events

Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Family Alliance provides emotional, educational and practical support to families of children with cancer. Candlelighters partners with families and shares their journey as they battle the disease and the tremendous financial burden they inherit immediately upon diagnosis. We offer all of our services free of charge to the families and therefore rely heavily on the generosity of the Houston community.

Support our programs and services by participating in our upcoming events.  Partner with Candlelighters to continue our mission and make life a little easier for these families by participating in our upcoming fundraising events, make a donation or volunteer.

Please contact our office at 713-270-4700 for specific sponsorship or volunteer information or email Lynn Wheeler at

General Donations

Did you know that for $500, you could sponsor a family at Camp CLIFF
$250 you could provide gifts for a family through our Adopt A Family for the Holidays program
$125 you could send a child to Camp CLIFF for the weekend
$100 you could help 10 families with parking for their clinic visit


#GivingTuesday proves that the holidays can be about BOTH giving and GIVING BACK. It celebrates how Americans can do more with their wallets than just shop – and that we Americans can GIVE as GOOD as we get.

#GivingTuesday is a special call to action and creates a national day of giving around the annual shopping and spending season to inspire giving every day.

It cost our families $12 a day to park at Texas Children’s Hospital and MD Anderson. As part of your year end giving, can you donate $12 to help a family pay for parking?
