Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation

This page is for families with children in the Univ. of Wisconsin Children's Hospital.


Light Up The Holidays Click this logo to put a gold ribbon in your child's name on the National Childhood  Cancer Awareness Tree in Washington DC!  The tree will stand on Capitol Hill through the holiday season. You can print out a submission form to mail in, or use the secure server on the Candlelighters web site to order a ribbon in honor of your child.  You can add a note expressing your thoughts about your child's experience which will be read by thousands of people.  The cost is $5, and the ribbon will be returned to you in January.  Help show our members of Congress that childhood cancer research is a vital national health priority!

You can create your own web page for your child! The Caring Bridge web site is a FREE service allowing anyone receiving medical care to communicate with family and friends using a web page.
Here are the very best  Childhood Cancer Resources on the Web
including the UW's own Outlook: Life Beyond Childhood Cancer.
Explore the website for the PBS program "Children's Hospital."  You can meet some kids with cancer, explore insurance issues and read the step-by-step support guide for parents of seriously ill children.
