September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month



Childhood cancer is not going

away anytime soon.

We need better treatment options for the nearly 13,000 children diagnosed with cancer in the United States every year.

Childhood cancer can

affect children for a lifetime.

Although this video is a few years old,

it graphically illustrates

the reality of current treatment.

Not much has changed since it was created.




Join together with the

Inland Northwest Community

to support kids with cancer.


Whatever your needs:

a good meal, coffee, wine, massage, car repairs, a haircut, a check-up, a way to honor kids with cancer, or a walk 

- you can support kids with cancer!

Our community should be very proud of itself!

Signs of Childhood Cancer

 Many times childhood cancer isn't diagnosed until late stages because it can mimic other ordinary childhood illnesses.


And although, more than likely, a child's illness will not be cancer, it is wise to be aware of the symptoms.


Click here a for a list of the signs of childhood cancer.


Every year in the

Inland Northwest,

between 40 and 50 children are diagnosed with cancer.

Treatments can last

as long as 3 years.

Effects of treatment

can last a lifetime.

Hematology Oncolgy Nurses are Special

September 8th 2010 -  Hematology/Oncology Nurses Day.


This is a long over-due honor for those who choose to care for the youngest of cancer patients and their families. It is not an easy task.


Supporting the professionals who care for children with cancer is part of the Candlelighters mission.


We are honored to recognize the nursing staff for their tireless efforts to improve the lives of kids with cancer and their families.
