Few things are as devastating as a child diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. Young patients and their families are quickly thrust into an unfamiliar and often frightening world of medical decisions and hospital protocols. At the same time, they are coping with emotional upheaval and financial anxiety. Their needs go well beyond what even the best medical care can provide. Founded more than 19 years ago by a family who has been there, CCA is the voice of experience, compassion and hope.
CCA offers free award-winning programs and resources to seriously ill children, teens and their families. Our MyMusicRx program offers the healing power of music. The Chemo Pal Mentor Program provides a trusted adult friend during cancer treatment. The Link program provides essential resources, and the Alexandra Ellis Caring Cabin provides a magical getaway where families can create precious memories.
Your gift will allow us to invest hope and comfort into the lives of thousands of seriously ill children and their families. CCA hopes to deliver JoyRx to nearly 14,000 children, teens, family members and the professionals who care for them this year. All of our programs, resources and services are delivered free of charge and made possible through individual, corporate and foundation support; we receive no state or federal funding.
