2021. What a year. A year of challenge, hope, inspiration, creativity, and above all

blessings. The last couple of years have proved to be transformative. They have tested

our imagination, our strength, and our resilience. Through the generous support and

kindness of our donors we have stayed on course and kept shining a light on hope

during the hardest times in our families' lives.

There is so much power in the power of one. The power of one volunteer, one donation,

one act of kindness. And together, that is the power of community; if everyone does a

little bit it makes the biggest difference. It is you. People of all walks of life coming

together for one mission.

YOU are the strength behind our mission. YOU are the smile makers. You are the drive

behind our mission to spread HOPE.

Thank you for believing in our mission, for being part of our community

of supporters.

Stephanie Avila

Executive Director

Childhood Cancer Foundation of Southern

California, Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit organization with

a mission to provide emotional, social, educational,

and emergency assistance to families who have or

have had a child diagnosed with cancer.

"You were a "light" to us at the beginning of a very dark

time for us. During and after treatment you have provided

a sense of "normalcy" for us. We will always be grateful for

everything you've done and continue to do."

- CCFSC FAMILY

Every two minutes a child is diagnosed with cancer.

43

Every day in the United

States, 43 children and

adolescents ages 0 to 19

are diagnosed with cancer.

The most common types of

cancer are leukemias, brain and

central nervous system (CNS)

tumors, and lymphomas.

The entire length of treatment is typically about 2 to 3 years, with

the most intense treatment in the first few months.

Childhood Cancer Foundation would not be able to provide the many

activities, events, and programs WITHOUT the donation of hundreds of

volunteer hours. Volunteers allow CCFSoCal to stretch every dollar to

make the greatest impact on our families and in return, provide a

positive outlet for the community to express care and support for

children and families in need.
