The Children’s Cause for Cancer Advocacy (CCCA) is now Children’s Cancer Cause.
New Name | Same Mission : A long, healthy life for every child with cancer.
September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month
Did you know that cancer is the number one cause of death by disease among children? Or that over 95% of childhood cancer survivors will have a significant health related issue by age 45?
During Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, we celebrate advances in childhood cancer treatment and care, remember the children we've lost, and engage new advocates to join in our mission of achieving a day when every child with cancer can live a long and healthy life.
Webinar Registration Now Open
Childhood cancer advocates, families, researchers, and survivors are invited to join us at 3pm EST on September 25th for a discussion of the challenges facing childhood cancer survivors as they transition out of pediatric care and into young adulthood.
We will follow up with more details, including speakers, as the date approaches.

Write Congress on Kids’ Cancer Issues
We are working with Congressional champions and other cancer coalitions on a wide range of issues, including research funding, insurance coverage, palliative care access, survivorship, and more - and you can help by reaching out to Congress using our action alerts.
