The Children’s Cancer Association knows that for seriously ill children and their families every moment is precious. That’s why our programs leverage music, nature, friendship, and resources to create transformative moments of joy for 28,000 children, teens, and their family members each year. We believe kids deserve long, wonderful lives. Or at the very least, short wonderful lives. Unlike many organizations dedicated to the worthy goal of someday finding a cure for cancer, CCA is all about creating joy today. See our programs in action here, or visit us anytime at JoyRx.org.
MyMusicRx delivers the healing power of music to kids facing cancer and other serious illnesses. Our bedside and digital programs engage hospitalized children of all ages and diagnoses, relieving stress, anxiety, and perception of pain.
