Cancer Warrior Breakfast
Candlelighters For Children With Cancer is celebrating 40 years! To highlight this milestone, Candlelighters is hosting its first ever no-cost breakfast and inviting community leaders to learn more about our mission to serve the WHOLE family when a child is diagnosed with cancer. This inaugural breakfast will recognize ambassadors throughout the state who have supported us in providing a community of healing, hope and light throughout the lifelong journey of childhood cancer. Join us to hear inspiring stories and honor the 80,000 family members we have served since 1977.
Thank You To Our Wonderful Sponsors!

Congratulations to all of you for making our first annual Cancer Warrior Breakfast a HUGE success!
Thanks to you we surpassed our goal and raised more than $50,000 for Candlelighters For Children With Cancer's life-changing programs and services! Our goal was to educate the community about our programs and services and explain why and how our supportive care model works. Candlelighters supports the WHOLE family when a child is diagnosed and treated for cancer and has helped 80,000 family members in Oregon and SW Washington since 1977.
We thank our wonderful long-time volunteers who trail blazed and maintained this organization. Because of their passion, Candlelighters has continued to serve this community for 40 years! It's thanks to all of them that we can continue to build and strengthen our community of healing for more than 2,000 family members annually.
Thank you to Sally Showman for being our emcee for the Cancer Warrior Breakfast! We are thankful and moved by her gift of time and talent. A special thank you to our speakers, Dr. Faith Galderisi and Brian Maher. Dr. Galderisi, a pediatric oncologist from Randall Children's Hospital, shared information and clinical studies on why Candlelighters programs and services are impactful for families and so necessary for the WHOLE family when a child is diagnosed with cancer. Brain Maher, Candlelighters Board Member and a Candlelighters Family Member, shared his moving story about his daughter Tilly's diagnosis and how every member of his family came to lean on Candlelighters For Children With Cancer.
