Candlelighters NYC

Hi, I'm Hilary.

As a cancer survivor, I have been looking to give back and work with families dealing with cancer. I learned about Candelighers NYC this summer and value their mission to help children with cancer and their families feel normal. While going through treatment myself, what I sought above everything else, was a sense of normalcy.

New York City offers some of the best pediatric cancer treatment available. Families from all over the world come to NYC to receive this specialized care. I appreciate how Candlelighters NYC helps families from so far away have a community while here in New York City.

I could not imagine a better organization to spend my time and energy helping, that's why I chose to dedicate my Brooklyn Half to this amazing organization.

Thank you for joining with me to support these kids and their families.
