This month we celebrate the first of our 2019 CCA Heroes, Shaun. Shaun and his family visited the CCA office to take part in his official CCA Hero photoshoot just weeks before he died. We are deeply saddened by his death, but grateful to have known him and all the joy he brought to the world.
When Phoenix was diagnosed with ALL it sent his family into a whirlwind of tests, medications, and devastating side effects. They felt completely ungrounded, but then Phoenix’s Chemo Pal, Brenton walked in the room with a bag of toys.
In 2018 you invested more in the community than ever before. With your help, CCA provided world-class programs to children and teens in the hospital and explored the future of joy in healthcare. 2018 was the year we decided transforming a moment isn’t enough – we need to transform the entire experience.
The hardships of cancer are not limited to the physical treatment. Cancer also affects a person’s social life, emotional wellbeing and financial stability. Many of the resources Link is able to provide are possible because of our incredible community partners, like Reliable Credit Association Inc.
At CCA, we are JOY SEEKERS. And although you may not realize it yet, YOU are a JOY SEEKER too. For the last 22 years, we at CCA have asked ourselves repeatedly: what can JOY do?
It’s #ChildhoodCancerAwareness Month, and while the Children’s Cancer Association’s (CCA) mission is to create joy, we’re also here to shed some light on the seriousness of childhood cancer.
