Candlelighters NYC helps kids fighting cancer and their families. Kids from all over the world come to New York City to receive the best pediatric cancer treatment available. Candlelighters NYC assists through all stages: discovery, diagnosis, treatment, and remission. We provide an emotional support system full of love and comfort while they are so far away from home. We add quality of life to children with cancer by providing them with a fun, positive atmosphere to help them feel normal in a situation that is so far from that. Candlelighters NYC becomes their New York City family so that they can just be kids.
Because kids can’t fight cancer alone!
