September marks National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. At Candlelighters of Brevard, we will take this opportunity to more deeply reflect with our community on the realities of childhood cancer. For over 27 years, Candlelighters has seen first-hand the devastation that the diagnosis of childhood cancer brings on to the entire family unit. However, we have also witnessed how the community can make a tremendous difference in the lives of these same families through education, advocacy, financial assistance and emotional support. Follow COB on Facebook this month as we share information, facts, stories and much more. To all of our COB families past and present throughout Brevard County, we honor each of you. Together as a community, if we reach out for their little hands we may just be able to touch their big hearts.
Childhood Cancer Awareness Month
The causes of pediatric cancer are still largely unknown, and though new discoveries are resulting in new treatments, this heartbreaking disease continues to scar families in our community in ways that may never fully heal. This month, Candlelighters of Brevard remembers these beautiful young lives taken too soon and stand with the families facing childhood cancer today. “Because kids can’t fight cancer alone.”
