How other Candlelighters initiatives are helping


Refuse2Lose – a fundraising group founded by Dev Jude and Ilana Shore; inspired by Bryce Jude who battled a rare form of leukemia for almost 3 years before passing away in September 2012.

Friends and family who supported the Jude family through Bryce’s journey continue to raise funds in support of Candlelighters Suite Seats Program; enabling children fighting cancer (and their families) to escape the stress of their day-to-day lives and safely experience the thrill and excitement of an Ottawa Senators game, a concert or one of the other many entertaining events that take place at Canadian Tire Centre.
