Candlelighters help cancer patients and their families through challenging times

Our charity partner, Candlelighters, have been involved in different initiatives to support families who are facing children’s cancer across Yorkshire. These include donations, organising fun activities for children or being a friendly face to their parents in difficult times.

They recently shared Dan’s story – a father who had been supported by the charity after he sadly lost his daughter to cancer.

“Candlelighters have been a tower of strength to us. They’ve held our hand in the darkest hours.”, Dan commented.

As a Family Network Volunteer for Candlelighters, Dan helps run peer support groups in Leeds and raise funds for children and families affected by cancer.

You can watch his brave story here and find out more information about Candlelighters here.
