Hi, I’m Israel…

I’m 10 years old and I live in Akron, Ohio. I like reading books, playing video games and riding my bike. I want to live in Florida when I grow up and I want to be a neuroblastoma doctor.

At age 5, I was diagnosed with neuroblastoma.

As a Candlelighters NYC kid, my favorite experiences include playing with Barbara’s dog, Uno, and hanging out. My parents would say their favorite part spending time with the Candlelighters team/family. When they spend time with you, they let you vent and give you a shoulder to cry on when needed. The support is genuine.

…And my family uses these words to describe Candlelighters NYC:  Safe haven
