9th Birthday is a Gift to CCC kids!

TAMPA, FEB 28 – Thank you to Marisa who surprised the CCC today by donating a check, Toys 'R' Us gift card and toys/games worth over $100!

The Tampa 9 year old with a charitable heart secured the donations for our families by requesting that friends and family of her own buy gifts for the Children's Cancer Center kids rather than for her.

Now that's a gift which is priceless….

THANK YOU MARISA – and HAPPY BIRTHDAY from all the Children & Families of the Children's Cancer Center!

Gianna’s Birthday FUNdraiser!

March 11, 2013 in general, news from us

For the second year in a row, young philanthropist Gianna leveraged her birthday party to raise funds for the Children's Cancer Center!

A year ago, Gianna had heard that a fellow student in her school, Trinity School For Children, was battling childhood cancer and she wanted to do something to help.

Gianna asks that in lieu of presents, all guests make a donation to the Children's Cancer Center.

This year she raised $610, making her two year total nearly $1400!!!

Gianna is a wonderful role model and we thank her – and all her birtdhay guests – for caring so much for their fellow students and our families!

Girls’ 6th Birthday Party raises hundreds for CCC

February 20, 2012 in news from us

When soon-to-be six year olds – and BFFs – Sadie, Lexi and Madelyn decided to have a joint birthday party, they also decided to give back to other children who may not be as fortunate as themselves.

The three birthday girls decided that, in lieu of presents for themselves, they would ask that oarty guests bring something from the Children's Cancer Center 'Wish List' which includes toys, gift cards and games. Many of these items will be used for Love Bundles the Children's Cancer Center gives to newly diagnosed cancer patients when they are first hospitalized, providing a means to occupy their time during long hours of treatment.

The Children's Cancer Center would like to say 'Thank you' to these three wonderful young ladies for being so selflessly aware of others!
