SUPPORT FROM PARENTS WHO’VE BEEN THERE
“Your child has cancer.” Words no parents ever want to hear. Words you’ve heard. Words we’ve heard. Words that will change your life forever. Words that are spoken to a new family every two minutes of every day.
But you are not alone, because we have been where you are. We are Candlelighters Parent Consultants. We have stood by our children as they fought childhood cancer, and now we’re here to stand with you; to provide daily support filled with words of hope, gestures of kindness, and knowledge and understanding. We’re here to be a shoulder to cry on and the cheerleader in your corner; we’re here to be the light in your darkest hours.
