Since 1995, CCA has been transforming the pediatric healthcare experience through innovative, Joy-based programs, enhancing the mental and emotional well-being of pediatric patients with the healing power of music, friendship, and nature. JoyRx® programs are free-of-charge and kid-prescribed, empowering children and teens to positively shift their emotional states during the stressful and painful experiences related to fighting life-threatening illnesses and extended hospitalizations.

At the Children’s Cancer Association (CCA) we believe all kids deserve long, wonderful lives. Or at the very least, short, wonderful lives. That’s why our programs leverage music, friendship, and nature to create transformative moments of joy for families facing cancer and other serious illnesses.
