DC Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit support group for families with children diagnosed with cancer in the Washington, DC metropolitan area (including Northern Virginia and Maryland ) and consists of volunteer parents who have had a child with cancer, and others who have an interest and a passion for childhood cancer issues. We believe no family should have to face the uncertain world of cancer alone, and therefore we provide emotional and educational support to families. We are affiliated with the American Childhood Cancer Organization.
