The Oklahoma Children's Cancer Association was founded
in 1974 by a small group of parents who were experiencing stress, questions and fears associated with having a family
member diagnosed with cancer.
These parents saw the need to provide local support- both
emotionally and financially for future families whose
children were diagnosed with cancer, thus Oklahoma Children's Cancer Association was born. OCCA
has grown from a small group of caring parents to an organization
affiliated with the OU Physicians Jimmy Everest Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders.
OCCA is a 501(C)3 foundation and has no paid employees. Its programs are entirely staffed by generous and giving volunteers.
The OCCA Board meets on the second Tuesday of every month, September thru May.
"Do all the good you can,
By all the means you can,
In all the ways that you can,
In all the places that you can,
At all the times that you can,
To all the peoples that you can,
As long as ever you can."
