Introducing Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation of Nevada (CCCFN), a compassionate and dedicated non-profit agency that extends unwavering support and vital services to families of children diagnosed with cancer. Our mission, born in 1978 through the collaborative efforts of two families facing the challenges of childhood cancer, revolves around providing strength, knowledge, and comfort to families during their most trying times. We firmly believe in the power of unity and the value of shared experiences, aiming to ease the burdens of those who will walk a similar path in the future.
CCCFN embraces children aged from birth to 21 years who have been diagnosed with cancer or have triumphed over it, as long as they reside or receive treatment in Nevada. Our story began with a dedicated group of volunteers, experienced parents standing by 24/7, ready to counsel newly diagnosed families and address their concerns. Over time, our impact has grown significantly, and today, we serve around 100 families monthly and up to 600 families annually, bolstered by a team of professional staff available at all times to provide essential family support.
Our dedication knows no bounds, and we proudly ensure that families seeking our assistance face no membership requirements or fees. A diagnosis of childhood cancer is the sole criterion for eligibility, and referrals can come from any source, respecting the family’s wishes.
CCCFN’s purpose is clear – to alleviate the profound isolation families often experience when their child receives a cancer diagnosis. With love, care, encouragement, and understanding, we stand by each family, ensuring no one navigates the uncertain world of childhood cancer alone. Our support and services cater to the diverse needs of every family, regardless of their economic status, race, religion, or choice of healthcare providers. Moreover, we offer all our programs and services at no cost to the families, made possible through the unwavering generosity of our donors.
Join us in our quest to make a difference in the lives of Nevada families facing childhood cancer. Our goal is to provide support, education, hope, and advocacy through a comprehensive range of programs and services designed for children, adolescents, their families, and the professionals who care for them. At Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation of Nevada, we transform hope into healing and ensure that your support and contributions directly impact and uplift the lives of those who need it most. Together, we can bring light to the darkest moments, one family at a time.
