Meet the Team

Childhood Cancer Foundation maintains a full-time office with professional staff available for family support. We are dedicated to raising awareness of this life-threatening disease as we shine a light of hope for all families.

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

Program Director

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.

Carmina Tejeda

Office Assistant

Carmina started her journey with Childhood Cancer Foundation as an avid volunteer of the program since 2019. She donated her time, resources and love to help the program continue to serve families like her own. Her niece was a patient and now survivor of the CCF program. We are grateful to have her on the team to help make all of our amazing programs possible.
