Teen Programs


The Luminaries

The Luminaries is Candlelighters teen support program that offers both a leadership opportunity and a chance to come together with other teens who have been through a cancer diagnosis as well. Our support program is led by our Teen Advisory Board and professionals from the oncology community to make sure we are offering programs tailored to specific teen needs.

Not only do we want to provide memorable activities, but we aim to offer these teens a chance to network and be around other teens who have walked the same path.  We offer several activities throughout the year that are open to teens only, and have also started making an impact in the hospital by creating and providing Teen Totes, that will make their hospital stay a little bit easier.

Our teen program is open to any teen that has been diagnosed with cancer and is aged 13-19.
