No parent is prepared to learn their child has cancer. That’s why Children’s Cancer Connection is here to help you navigate the road ahead. While many great organizations are working to find a cure for the disease afflicting more than 13,500 children each year in the United States, Children’s Cancer Connection strives to provide care following a cancer diagnosis. We provide opportunities to encourage relationships and strengthen community to over 600 families. Whatever twists and turns you encounter as you adjust to your new normal, you can always count on one thing: Children’s Cancer Connection is dedicated to supporting you the entire way.
Day Camp is for both the child diagnosed with cancer and their siblings ages 5-12. Days are filled with summer fun and spending time with friends here in Des Moines at the Hansen Home for Hope. We pack in all kinds of activities without the overnight stay!
