CHILDHOOD CANCER FAMILY ALLIANCE INC's Fundraiser:

Send a Family to Camp CLIFF

THE STORY:

Candlelighters is a Houston-based charity serving families facing childhood cancer who are being treated at MD Anderson and Texas Children's Hospital. Founded by families, Candlelighters programs and services are the direct result of the vision they shared: "We have faced childhood cancer and we want to make the journey easier for those who come after us."

In that spirit, Camp CLIFF (Children Loved In Families Forever) was developed by these same founders who recognized the need for “family time”. Each October Candlelighters families spend the weekend at Camp For All where they enjoy a true camping experience and the precious opportunity to spend time away from the routines of hospitals and treatments. New acquaintances are made and old friendships are rekindled. Though some campers don't have the chance to return, their memories always live on. Most importantly, Camp CLIFF gives siblings and their parents a chance to make happy family memories. Sometimes, memories from camp mark the last time a family spends time together outside of the hospital walls.

Since camp mirrors the population that Candlelighters serves – on-treatment, off-treatment, long-term survivors and bereaved families – families also find peer-based, parent-to-parent guidance from this weekend away.

The Fun Walk's main mission is to raise money for Camp CLIFF. It costs $150 to send a camper to this annual weekend away and we plan to send 250 patients, parents and siblings.
