CCA Logo

For children diagnosed with serious illness and their families, every moment is precious. At CCA, our goal is to transform as many of those moments as possible – with joy. The Children’s Cancer Association didn’t start with a foundation, it started with a family. One who faced its own battle with serious pediatric illnesses almost two decades ago in Portland, Oregon. From that experience came a passionate commitment and focus: To deliver the healing power of music, friendship, play and resources to families facing the same challenges. Unlike many organizations dedicated to the worthy goal of someday finding a cure for cancer, CCA is all about creating joy today.
