At Candlelighters, we support families facing children's cancer in Yorkshire financially, emotionally and practically. We get involved in all sorts of different projects to help ordinary families who are facing extraordinary circumstances. We provide a comprehensive support package to every family who has a child or young person diagnosed with any form of malignant disease or a non-malignant but life threatening haematological disorder or Central Nervous System disorder.
The money we raise helps us to pay for toys and equipment on the wards and in clinic at Leeds Children’s Hospital.
We fund 665hrs every week of roles at Leeds Children's Hospital for many people who make children’s cancer treatment in Yorkshire amongst the best in the country.
We are also proud to invest in a vital research programme into the causes of children's cancer and potential new treatments.
