Every day in the U.S., 46 school children are diagnosed with
cancer, and 1 in 5 of those children will die from the disease.
Treatment for children with cancer is available only in a
larger cities at Childrens Hospitals. Often parents have to
take a leave of absence from work without pay, or quit their job to
care for the child for months, or even years, at a time when they
are overwhelmed with enormous additional expenses such as
co-payments, travel, motels, meals, and other uncovered items. A
child's cancer diagnosis creates an incredible financial burden for
the family. Opportunities for further donations from the community
will be available.
All proceeds from the event benefits the American Childhood
Cancer Organization of the Inland Northwest (formerly
Candlelighters of the Inland NW). ACCO serves children and
families from throughout Eastern Washington, Idaho and Montana and
provides direct family support including gas, groceries, toys,
parties, educational materials, emotional support, financial
assistance and more. More information about the American
Childhood Cancer Organization of the Inland Northwest is available
online at www.acco.org/inlandnw.
We invite you to support the cancer kids who are your neighbors
… because kids can't fight cancer alone!
Opportunities for further donations from the community will be
available at the event. For more information, call Angie at
