What many people may not understand about childhood cancer is that the devastation reality of the disease goes miles beyond anything physical. In addition to the extreme financial strain of paying for care, Brevard based families must also devote an overwhelming amount of time, travel and money for countless other expenses.

From the shock of the diagnosis to the painful side-effects of treatment, the ongoing heartbreak and emotional impact felt by the entire family is hard to imagine.
While nobody can see the diagnosis coming, we can make sure that Brevard patients and families have the support and resources they need to fight back. From economicassistance to emotional encouragement, join Candlelighters of Brevard in helping families survive the extreme physical, psychological and practical hardships of this disease.

Consider the following truths:

Because there are no pediatric oncologists in Brevard, 100% of our families must travel out of the county in order to seek medical care.

These families also drive approximately 229,623 miles to their treatment centers.
In 2016 these families spent 947 days at clinic visits, 608 days in-patient and over 175 days were spent at the Ronald McDonald House.

As a duo, their music takes you on a journey, sifting through genres of Pop, R&B, Soul, Hip Hop and folk seamlessly.

Omar is the veritable artist. The self-taught musician, singer, songwriter, producer and photographer has been honing his craft for years and is now set to release his debut single and record “The Getaway”.
