The Holiday Season is 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.

That’s where we step in. Childhood Cancer Foundation of Southern California’s Holiday programs might look a little different today, but our core mission has remained unchanged: we exist to be a light of HOPE during the darkness. To offer a helping hand during one of the most difficult roads a family will navigate.

Every two minutes a child is diagnosed with cancer worldwide, these children are all brave fighters who rely on the power of their community to keep their strength through their fight. A donation from you will show them that they are not alone and that there is a community of people who care about them. It’s a small gesture that makes the biggest difference!

We are privileged to meet heroes everyday. Children that show us the bravest smiles every time we see them, no matter how they feel or what treatments they’ve received that day. Parents that advocate and care for their child’s health and well being despite being forced on a journey that tests their family physically, emotionally, socially, and financially.

 

We gain our strength to continue in our mission to be a light of hope to these special families through our everyday “hero” encounters.

 

Today, we ask you to join us in support of those same heroes. Our program might look a little different today, but our core mission has remained unchanged: we exist to be a light of HOPE during the darkness. To offer a helping hand during one of the most difficult roads a family will navigate.

“A true hero isn't measured by the size of his strength, but by the size of his heart.”
- Zeus, Hercules
"You were a "light" to us at the beginning of a very dark time for us. During and after treatment you have provided a sense of "normalcy" for us. We will always be grateful for everything you've done and continue to do."
- CCFSoCal Family
