Teen Programs


The Middle

The Middle 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. 

Upcoming Events:
Teen Movie Night
Saturday, February 10th - Bridgeport Village Movie Theater
7329 SW Bridgeport Rd, Tigard, OR 97224

We are headed to the movies! Come catch a flick with our teen only group. We will meet at Bridgeport Village and head in together. Drop off time and movie will be dependent on what is playing. An email will go out prior to the date letting you know specific details! Any teen who has battled or is currently battling cancer is welcome. If a teen also has teen siblings, and there is room, they may attend as well. Space will be open to Candlelighters teens first.  Adults will be supervising the teens throughout the day.
