Children’s Cancer Center

Our Mission

The Children’s Cancer Center is a non-profit organization dedicated to serving children and their families who are battling cancer or chronic blood disorders with the emotional, financial, and educational support necessary to cope with their life-threatening illness.

With over 24 support programs and services currently helping over 1,000 children, support is offered to all members of the family and is available throughout every step of their difficult journey.

Our Story

Children’s Cancer Center was founded in 1974. Mac and Cecile Burnett, who lost their daughter Helen to leukemia, and Dr. Janifer M. Judisch envisioned an organization that would help alleviate the stress of coping with a child’s life-threatening disease.

The philosophy of our original founders was that when a child is diagnosed, the entire family is really diagnosed. Therefore, our programs and services address the needs of all family members affected.

Words from Children & Their Families in Our Programs

I loved being able to watch my sister walk through the door and not have to worry about being bald, or walking funny, or being laughed at, or made fun of.

JenBereaved sister of a cancer patient

As a mother and wife, I am very thankful that the CCC realizes the importance of the parent getting time on their own, as well as the parents getting time together to reconnect and let their shoulders down some, and the need for the whole family to get loved on.... When a child is diagnosed , the whole family is diagnosed!

The Children’s Cancer Center was a place where Shanella could be with other kids who were on the same journey. Cancer can make you feel isolated and alone, but the CCC gave us hope and a place for Shanella to connect.

Shanella's Family

The Children’s Cancer Center is always putting together fun events for ALL our kids and it lets us spend time together as a family with other families who are going through the same experience.

GingerMom of a cancer patient

Just being able to spend time with other families that are going through the same thing and seeing our son having fun and interacting with other kids without being afraid has helped us get through this diagnosis.
