We put the children and their families first in everything we do
Where do you turn when you hear those dreaded words “Your child has cancer!” CAC2 is here for you – to help guide you to financial and other resources, educate you about research, put you in touch with other similar families and so much more.
This next generation of the Hope Portal strives to connect childhood cancer families to the information and support resources they need–faster than ever. This resource is made possible by a collaboration between the Association of Pediatric Hematology and Oncology Nurses (APHON), the Association of Pediatric Oncology Social Workers (APOSW), the Coalition Against Childhood Cancer, and KBI Biopharma.
The Hope Portal offers families a robust list of organizations around the country that may be able to provide assistance to children with cancer and their families. The original Hope Portal was designed and supported by the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles.
CAC2 is proud of the published works by it’s members. The books listed on the CAC2 website are a bountiful resource of practical first-hand experiences from the frontlines of childhood cancer. The collection contains a wealth of valuable information for patients, families, and caregivers. The selection includes non-fiction and fiction works for all ages.

Family to Family
Sometimes, you just need someone to listen. Someone who ‘gets it’. If you’d like to be a friend to another family in the battle, please fill out the form below and we will post your information on this site as a resource for other families. If you’re looking to speak with someone who’s been down this path, please check back to the site and feel free to reach out to the names listed here. It’s the ‘club you never want to be a part of’ but we all have this common bond.
