Our mission: A long, healthy life for every child with cancer.
Children's Cause for Cancer Advocacy (CCCA) is a leading national nonprofit organization working since 1999 to achieve more rapid access to less toxic and more effective therapies; to expand resources for childhood cancer research and care; and to address the needs and challenges of childhood cancer survivors and their families.
The Children's Cause is the strong advocacy and policy voice for children with cancer in national debates on research, new therapy development and health care reform.
In February 2017, the Childhood Cancer STAR Act was reintroduced in the House and the Senate. The bipartisan STAR Act passed the House of Representatives late last year but failed to advance in the Senate. We have high hopes that we will see this bill - the most comprehensive childhood cancer legislation ever introduced in Congress - signed into law in 2017. You can help!
