We held our 1st online Charity Auction!

In honor of Andy's Ambassador Jacob Munoz, proceeds benefited Candlelighters Houston

Andy's Challenge was delighted to work with Candlelighters Houston. This group has particular meaning to Jacob and he was thrilled to be able to give back and say thank you for the support Candlelighters provided during his multiple battles with leukemia over the past five years.

Thank you for helping families and their children with cancer!

 

The Story of Candlelighters Houston

  • A story of the special bond that develops between a Parent Consultant and the family of a child newly diagnosed with cancer. They serve as a peer to help navigate the overwhelming world of medical jargon, insurance claims, and treatment plans.

  • A story of the thousands of dollars that a family will spend on parking, meals, and groceries while their child is undergoing treatment and how Candlelighters is there to ease that burden.

  • A story of so many families who would not be able to celebrate the holiday season if it were not for our Adopt-A-Family Program. Individuals, corporations, and many groups come together each year to provide a special holiday for hundreds of children and their families.

  • A story of the family that has to come to terms with the fact that their child is not going to survive. The countless hours Candlelighters Parent Consultants sit with families listening and providing solace during their time of need is priceless.

  • A story of the precious time that families spend together at Camp CLIFF (Children Loved in Families Forever) experiencing the magic and fun of camp, surrounded by one another and caring Candlelighters volunteers. Camp is always a time to be treasured!

  • The stories are endless, as are the needs of the families who have children battling cancer.

 

Cancer does not discriminate and neither does Candlelighters. All our programs and services are offered at no cost to families of children with cancer; once a Candlelighters family = always a Candlelighters family.
