At CCA, volunteers are our heart and soul, fueling programs that bring the joy of music, the magic of wishes, the power of information and the comfort of friendship to thousands of seriously ill children and their families every year. As a CCA volunteer, you have the power to change the lives of those in need. In return, you’ll find your own life changed by the extraordinary spirit of these courageous kids.

Get involved.
Be inspired.
