As part of CKN’s commitment to raising awareness about Childhood Cancer, we invited various organizations to join our “Childhood Cancer: Go for the Gold” campaign. We feel the time has come to join together and unite in the effort to increase public knowledge about childhood cancer through the Gold Ribbon Symbol and September: Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
Please join us as we come together to give a voice to the children who are silently fighting this deadly disease. Like us on Facebook so you receive our powerful line-up of articles this month – and please share them with your contacts to spread the word.
Today’s Feature: Children’s Cancer Association (CCA)
Children’s Cancer Association (CCA) is a national leader providing free, innovative programs of JoyRx and has connected hundreds of thousands of children, teens, and their family members to the power of hope, comfort, and happiness in the last two decades.
CCA didn’t start with a foundation, it started with a family. One who faced its own battle with serious pediatric illness in Portland, Oregon. From that experience came a passionate focus on the moment, and a commitment to deliver immediate help to kids when their need is the greatest.
We prescribe joy. CCA knows that in the fight against devastating illness, joy is often forgotten and something every child deserves. When seriously ill children, teens, and their families need more than medicine, CCA’s innovative programs create joy one moment at a time.
“Kids deserve long wonderful lives. Or at the very least, short wonderful lives. One day kids who are diagnosed with cancer or terminal illness will be delivered an inexhaustible infusion of JoyRx alongside traditional treatments and state-of-the-art medical interventions. Making room for JOY in the moments between life and death will change lives for the better – yours, mine, ours.”
Regina Ellis, CCA Founder and CEO
