How We Help

  • Treatment Center Allotment Program:  This program provides funds for trips to treatment centers outside of Brevard or Indian River County for clinic, outpatient, or in-patient appointments related to the childhood cancer diagnosis.  
  • Medical Financial Assistance Program:  This program provides families on treatment with financial assistance towards out of pocket medical expenses (IE: copays, doctors’ visits, infusions, ER visits, etc).

  • Superhero Program: This program provides families who are facing extraordinary challenges during treatment with a Superhero Party & Photoshoot Experience through SpaceCoast Living Magazine. Separately, Candlelighters will host Superhero parties throughout the year for all children on treatment. Each segment of the Superhero Program will focus on empowering families to find their inner superpower while battling the villain – cancer. 
  • Angel Fund:  A one-time financial donation of $1000 is given to families who have suffered the agonizing loss of a child to assist with funeral or other related costs.
