CANDLELIGHTER’S SIMCOE

Based in Barrie, Candlelighters Simcoe was founded in 1990 by the parent of a childhood cancer patient.

They provide programs and services for children families impacted by childhood cancer. They deal mainly with alleviating both the emotional and financial stress that families of children with cancer deal with on a daily basis.

The programs are facilitated by parents whose children have been diagnosed with cancer.

 

SEASONS CENTRE FOR GRIEVING CHILDREN

They provide peer to peer support groups for children and teens and their families grieving the death, or life-threatening illness of an immediate family member.

Participants are supported through the grief process by professional program staff  and trained volunteer grief facilitators in a safe, non-judgmental, home like atmosphere.
