Can you imagine the fear, anger, confusion, and pure shock of having your child diagnosed with cancer? Children’s Cancer Connection exists to provide support, education, and recreation for the entire family throughout the entire journey. Many great organizations are working to find cures for the more than 13,500 children diagnosed each year in the United States. Children’s Cancer Connection strives to provide the care of a cancer diagnosis.

Cancer Doesn’t Care… but We Do!

Children’s Cancer Connection is a nonprofit based in Des Moines, Iowa helping all pediatric patients and their families who may be diagnosed, treated, or lives in Iowa. We support the entire family, the entire journey through programs and services which are provided at little cost or free for families. We offer support groups for parents, siblings, teens and young adults, oncology and sibling summer camps, survivorship services, scholarships, and various resource and education materials. This is made possible thanks to many caring people providing funding and volunteer support. Annually, Children’s Cancer Connection uses more than 35,000 volunteer hours to provide our programs and services. Donations to help kids with cancer and their families are received from many sources. Children’s Cancer Connection hosts fundraising efforts like the Flapjack 5k / 10k run and Camping the Night Away. We sell Christmas and Holiday Cards drawn by the children we serve. We receive donations from individuals, clubs and corporations. We are supported by grants from foundations. Fund Raising by Friends is one of our best resources – individuals and companies host fundraising events from bake sales to volleyball tournaments, and from golf outings to garage sales and they choose Children’s Cancer Connection to benefit from their charity event. They are partners in our effort to bring comfort to families affected by pediatric cancer.
