Hi, I’m Delaney…

I’m 7 years old and I live in Wood-Ridge, NJ. I love the beach or anything to do with water and boats. I also enjoy exploring, spending time with others, meeting new people and dancing. In fact, I take aerial classes (lyra and silks!) and I can pole dance! My mom thinks I’m going to do something that involves helping others when I’m older. I think I am going to be a doctor (surgeon) and famous!

When I was 3 months old, I was diagnosed with stage 4 high risk neuroblastoma.

My favorite experience with Candlelighters NYC was meeting RJ at the Hamptons (and every trip with Barbara!). My mom says her favorite part of Candlelighters NYC is being able to connect with other families. We didn’t have this connection to other families before meeting Candlelighters NYC. It is amazing to be with the volunteers and other families that understand what we are going through.

…And my family uses these words to describe Candlighters NYC: Support and endless love
