Candlelighters' Mission

Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Family Alliance Mission is to provide emotional, educational and practical support to families of children with cancer.

Candlelighters is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization serving childhood cancer patients and their families in the 13 counties of the greater Houston community without regard to race, national origin, sex, religion, or social status.  We currently serve between 900 and 1,300 families each month.  Our services and programs assist children with cancer and their families, long-term survivors of childhood cancer, adult survivors of childhood cancer and their families, and bereaved families who are/or were treated at the Texas Medical Center (MD Anderson Cancer Center and Texas Children’s Hospital) and/or who reside in the greater Houston area.

Candlelighters' mission is to provide emotional, educational and practical support to the families we serve and to educate our community about childhood cancer.  At the heart of our organization is the Parent Consultant Program – the emotional center of what we do.  Each of our four Parent Consultants is the parent of a child who has had cancer. 

MD Anderson and Texas Children’s Hospital have graciously integrated the Parent Consultant Program as an approved outside resource for their patients and families.  Candlelighters' Parent Consultants are one of the only outside resources allowed to interact one-on-one with children with cancer and their families in these two hospitals.  Since they office at the two hospitals, the PCs have become an integral part of the psycho-social team at both hospitals.
