I was very pleased to join the board of Directors in 2019. My son David was diagnosed with Burkitt’s Leukemia in 2017 and the Candlelighter’s were a wonderful source of support to our family during his treatment. Now in remission David, and his sister Maria are enthusiastic participants in Candlelighter’s activities, especially camp. Volunteering with the Candlelighter’s has been a great opportunity to give back to the organization, and it is an honour to have the opportunity to represent families who have experienced childhood cancer .
