A letter from Jacob to Lily…

Cancer affects the entire family! Candlelighters NYC is grateful for Jacob’s Bar Mitzvah fundraiser that is in honor of his cousin Lily. Read about their special relationship and support his fundraising efforts below.


Candlelighters NYC is proud to partner with the Band of Parents to provide subsidized housing to families in need of lodging while in NYC for treatment. With your help, we can provide even more financial support to off-set the cost of rooms at The Residence Inn.

Candlelighters NYC is an organization dedicated to helping families get through the difficult times when a child is diagnosed with and being treated for cancer. We assist through all stages: discovery, diagnosis, treatment and remission.  Watch our YouTube video here!

You can help!

Your donations are critical to keeping our services to the families going. When we host events, our donor funds cover every expense for them (food/toys/transport/etc). When you make a gift, you will be directly impacting families fighting childhood cancer whose lives are being touched by our programs. You can make a difference in the lives of these kids. We need your help and we greatly appreciate your support.
