About us

Our mission

Our mission is to enhance the quality of life for families affected by childhood cancer by providing programs for education, recreation and support.

Children’s Cancer Connection, a nonprofit organization based in Des Moines, Iowa (with offices in Iowa City and Cedar Falls), was founded in 1988. We strive to help pediatric cancer patients and their families in Iowa and surrounding states, regardless of treatment outcome or years off treatment. We support the entire family through the entire journey by providing services at little-to-no cost for individuals and families.
