We lost our daughter when she was 17 year old to cancer. She died to young and to keep her memory alive we have donated or purchased items from CCC in her honor. This group does awsome job of bringing joy to so many people in so many ways. If we stop funding research now we will lose more children and that just should not happen keep up the good work.

I first got involved with this fabulous charity when my brother had cancer some years ago and attended their annual summer camp. He had a great experience - it allowed him to get away from the disease for a week and just be a kid again. They do fabulous work!!

Children's Cancer Connection and their programs are a godsend to families! The volunteers are dedicated, wonderful caring individuals that are there to help the children and their families. My family participates in the Danny Joe Golf Tournament each June to raise money to help this worthy cause. Thank you for all you do! Karen - Danny Joe's aunt.

Having visited Sibling Camp, the Christmas Card Kick-Off Event and the Breakfast of Champions, I am continually humbled by the spirit of the children and their families and the compassion of the volunteers. Participating in the Adopt-a-Family was a joy for our office in giving. The thoughtfulness of thank yous and photos of our family that we received was truly a 'connection' for us all.

Our family has been served by the Heart Connection beginnin in 1988. Our children attended their camps. We have been recipents of their services, donors and volunteers. When our son, Kevin was struggling with cancer, he set his sites on getting to camp. He made it and The Heart Connection did not fail him in providing the best camp ever. The planning that took place by the staff to ensure he had a wonderful, safe time one last time gave us all memories to treasure for a lifetime.
