Two ceremonies are held in September to honor and remember children who have or have had cancer. We welcome the community to join us for the candle lighting ceremonies as families share stories about their child. During the Candle Lighting Ceremony we light four candles: one for our families who battle with childhood cancer, another for the child in treatment, another for childhood cancer survivors, and lastly for Childhood Cancer Foundation's commitment to the childhood cancer community. We join together and write messages of hope and strength and release them to the skies.

During our Memorial Candle Lighting Ceremony we come together to honor the memory of all the children we loved and admired through their battle with cancer. We light four candles; one for our sadness, one for our memories, one for our love, and one again for Childhood Cancer Foundation's commitment. Through knowing these children we get our strength to continue. We conclude the evening by releasing balloons that carry messages of love, of longing, and of a hope to one day be with them again.
