Cancer is still the leading cause of death by disease of children in the United States.

During September’s National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, JoyRx, the mission delivery of Children’s Cancer Association, is raising vital funds through various campaigns and events to continue providing customized programs — JoyRx Music, JoyRx Mentorship, and JoyRx Nature — to children battling pediatric cancer.

At JoyRx, we believe Joy has the power to heal. We’ve seen it. Joy is a key benefit to improving the pediatric patient experience of care. JoyRx programming improves emotional health, elevates mood, and maximizes wellness by using Joy as a powerful immune system enhancer.

Your generosity enables thousands of sick kids and their families to find Joy and emotional healing through our no-cost program offerings.

Every three minutes a child is diagnosed with cancer.

Every. Three. Minutes.

During the month of September, hear from JoyRx-served kids, parents, healthcare workers, and JoyRx staff about why they believe that Joy is medicine. Believers that Joy can heal have the opportunity to donate $3 a month to bring more joy-based programming to kids who need it most. Learn more here.
