Share a Meaningful Memory from a Volunteer Experience: I have met so many wonderful people that all have a common goal of helping each other make this possible for the children. I had a great time working with Nic making 5k bags and helping Carol hang the most beautiful banners made by local Bishop Gorman art students while setting up for the Halloween Bash was really inspiring and so much fun.
Why Did You Choose Candlelighters as an Organization to Volunteer for? I chose to volunteer for this organization because of my own family. My aunt has the most loving heart and has dedicated her life to her husband and family, but gave up an entire vacation when a child was diagnosed to go help his family. My mother has 4 children and is a school nurse and has dedicated her life to taking care of everyone but most importantly children because they are the future and keep us all smiling and young. I just want to be helpful to those that need it and be a blessing to those that can really make an impactful change on children, cancer, and their families. Thank you Candlelighters for giving so many a bright light in a dark world.
