It illuminates precious light, love, courage and compassion.
The symbol of strength and solidarity for those that fight against childhood cancer.

Talking, connecting, being heard, being listened to.
And most of all, knowing that you are not alone.
Six children, adolescents and young adults are diagnosed with cancer every week in Ireland.
