An Opportunity to Make Memories

Jack - General
Jack - General

For Jack and his family, a stay at The Alexandra Ellis Caring Cabin provided a priceless opportunity to spend quality time with family, away from the confines of a hospital. The cabin became a place of joy, happiness, adventure, and healing for a family in need of a break from the outside world.

Located on 24 wooded acres near Pacific City, this unique, secluded home is surrounded by a beautiful white sand beach, lakeside fire pit, and a serene, private lake for kayaking, boating, and fishing. The Alexandra Ellis Caring Cabin provides children and teens facing cancer and terminal illnesses that are in treatment in Oregon, along with their families, an extraordinary place to relax and create once-in-a-lifetime memories.

Other CCA programs that prescribe joy to families with sick children and teens include:

  • Chemo Pal® Mentor Program, a program that pairs children and teens one-to-one with compassionate adults who offer supportive relationships throughout chemotherapy or other treatments;
  • Link, a family enrichment program that brings hope during the overwhelming and financially depleting journey by helping families with essential needs; and
  • MusicRx®, CCA’s flagship music medicine program that soothes and rejuvenates hospitalized children, teens, their family members, and the medical professionals who care for them, by infusing the hospital environment with the healing power of music.
  • MyMusicRx, an online extension of our original in-hospital program. Kids and teens facing a serious illness across the country can register to receive free music medicine at MyMusicRx.org. On any given day, 24/7, they can play free online music games, explore digital instruments, record original music, watch exclusive video greetings from their favorite artists, and connect with other youth.
