Candlelighters Sponsorship and Underwriting Opportunities

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.  Please contact our office at (713) 270-4700 for specific sponsorship or volunteer information.
