Children’s Cancer Cause is a leading national advocacy organization working to achieve access to less toxic and more effective pediatric cancer therapies; to expand resources for research and specialized care; and to address the unique needs and challenges of childhood cancer survivors and their families. Children’s Cancer Cause leads efforts to ensure that these needs and perspectives of children with cancer are integrated into the highest deliberations on health care and cancer policy at the Federal level.
Children’s Cancer Cause is pleased to offer an annual opportunity for two childhood cancer survivors to gain valuable cancer advocacy experience. The College Scholars Program includes a requirement of completing a childhood cancer advocacy project of the scholar’s choice. Projects could be as extensive as a summer internship at CCC's DC office to something more local, like organizing an awareness event in their hometown or mobilizing other students at their school in a letter-writing campaign. Creativity is encouraged, and mentorship and support from the CCC team will be provided.
