Children’s Cancer Association, Portland, Oregon;
Regina Ellis and her family founded CCA in 1995 after her five-year-old daughter Alexandra died of cancer. Along with other parents, pioneers, and dreamers she set out to create something extraordinary……an organization with a new vision for what pediatric cancer support services might look like.
What started around Regina’s kitchen table has grown to one of the largest children’s health non-profits in the Northwest with annual revenue of over $6 million, and award-winning programs that reach children in all 50 states. Regina proudly serves as CCA’s Founder and Chief Joy Officer.
We are a federally-recognized 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization.
