Children's Cancer Association
MISSION: When seriously ill children and their families need more than medicine, CCA's innovative programs create joy one moment at a time.
Children’s Cancer Association knows that for seriously ill children and their families every moment is precious. That’s why our programs leverage music, friendship, play, and resources to create transformative moments of joy for 20,000 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® is the flagship program of the Children’s Cancer Association who believes #JoyMatters and #MusicHeals. Two decades ago we began delivering the healing power of music to children and teens facing cancer and other serious illnesses. Today, our bedside and digital “music medicine” programs engage hospitalized children of all ages and diagnoses, relieving stress, anxiety, and perception of pain. Since 1995, MyMusicRx has served nearly 150,000 children along with their families, caregivers, and medical professionals. MyMusicRx digital programs are available daily to 7,500 children in 25 pediatric hospitals across the country and growing. See MyMusicRx in action here, or visit us anytime at MyMusicRx.org
