Our Mission

Caring support for families fighting childhood cancer.


Our focus is the emotional, practical, educational and financial support for families every step of the way. CCF provides Nemours Children's Health with a financial grant that secures a Child Life Specialist position for the Oncology Department. Whether it is sponsoring a play activity at the clinic, making a house or car payment, providing educational material, or a fun-filled family weekend at Camp Boggy Creek, CCF is dedicated to assisting these brave children and their families.
