The Holiday Season should be a time of joyful celebration with family and friends. Yet, for hundreds of families in our community, the joy of the season will seem very far away.
Every two minutes a parent hears the devastating news, “Your child has cancer.” With these words, normal life stops and a difficult new journey begins; a journey that will test families physically, emotionally, socially, and financially.
We hope to alleviate each family's difficult situation and spark more than smiles to the children through our Annual Christmas Celebration and our many support programs continued through the year.
Childhood Cancer Foundation currently serves over 800 families throughout Southern California and continues to grow and impact the lives of hundreds of children year after year. Together, we can help one more patient, sibling or parent find hope through the Holiday Season.
Tax-deductible donation can be made online or via U.S. mail.
