Help in a Time of Need

Nate and Samantha

Meet Nate and his sister, Samantha, who needed an easy way to get a little cardio exercise to help with Nate’s cystic fibrosis. CCA’s Link program stepped in and was able to provide the siblings with fun karate classes.

CCA’s Link program is a community network of caring people and organizations that unites local families facing serious pediatric illness with connections to local and national resources. We help families with specific, essential needs, from providing a child with a new pair of eyeglasses to granting the wish of a child with a terminal illness.

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

  • 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.
  • Chemo Pal® Mentor Program, an award-winning program that pairs children and teens one-to-one with compassionate adults who offer supportive relationships throughout chemotherapy or other treatments.
  • The Alexandra Ellis Caring Cabin™, which 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.
