Hope and Remembrance is a life-sized statue commissioned through the group’s second Capital Campaign. Local sculptor Charles Parks created the bronze piece of art to honor our Oncology Children, including those who:
• lost their battle against cancer
• are currently on treatment
• fought and are now Cancer Survivors
May they never be forgotten!
Candlelighters Care Binders are an expandable resource for each new oncology family. The binder contains area maps, information packets, notepaper, and a basic introduction about cancer. These binders help parents stay informed and organized as they travel this new pathway in their lives.
Resource Books are specific cancer books that are requested by families are purchased by the CCCFD for the Oncology Social workers to distribute.
Candlelighters Corner, located on 3C North, is a walled off, secluded and furnished area in the back of the in-patient area of 3C North. It’s a meeting area for parents, who can relax or talk with physicians and staff in a semi-private area.
A Fish Tank, located in Candlelighters Corner, offers a relaxing view for parents and children during a stressful time.
The 3C North Balcony was dedicated in October, 2001 through a parent-initiated Capital Campaign. The CCCFD exceeded its goal of raising $100,000 in donations to redesign and open a previously locked balcony. This provides children and their families some sunshine and fresh air just a short walk from their rooms. Giant sunflowers and other colorful plants brighten the flower boxes during the spring, summer, and fall months.
A Retractable Awning was installed on the balcony to protect our children from the direct sunlight. This provides shade for parents and children as they enjoy the outdoor air.
TVs and VCRs were purchased for the Hematology/Oncology Clinic, the four (4) isolation rooms on 3C North, and all of the single rooms in the Bone Marrow Unit.
