Stephanie Avila

Executive Director

Stephanie has dedicated over 10 years of service to the organization, beginning her employment with CCFSoCal in October of 2007. She has been a fundamental asset in coordinating and developing the many programs offered to families. She has seen the benefits of the program first-hand through her participation as a sibling of a patient registered with the organization. Childhood Cancer Foundation prides itself in being a very personal organization and Stephanie’s personal experience with childhood cancer as a child and an adult provides families with emotional and social support that has strong personal connections.

Angelica Tapia

Office Administrator

Angelica began her personal journey with the CCFSoCal program as a volunteer in 2016, and shortly after came on staff in February of 2017. She has seen the impact and benefits of the program first-hand through her niece’s participation with the organization as a patient and now survivor. She has been instrumental in developing community partnerships to further enhance the many programs offered to CCFSoCal families.
