CCRF Appoints New Executive Director
New Oxford, PA –December 22, 2017 – The Children’s Cancer Recovery Foundation (CCRF), a
non-profit organization dedicated to supporting children under 18 and their families facing the
hardships of cancer, announces the appointment of Amy O’Leary as its Executive Director.
She will oversee development, management, and oversight of CCRF, including program services, fundraising, and outreach/public education.
O’Leary currently resides in Abbottstown, Adams County, and is a graduate of New Oxford High School. Her professional background includes experience working with local non-profit organizations, including financial management, human resources, and community outreach. She has been working with various local non-profits as a volunteer for over 15 years.
“I was first introduced to CCRF when I organized and led a volunteer group with my previous place of employment. It was then that I immediately identified with the mission of the organization. Shortly after, I was asked and graciously accepted the offer to join the Foundation’s Board of Directors. Now being appointed as Executive Director, I am grateful to have the opportunity to expand the Foundation while helping children and their families who are impacted by pediatric cancer. Our New Oxford team is eager to begin growing our organization in such a remarkable community. With my newly appointed role and the New Year ahead, we plan to implement more community-based events. Please watch our Facebook page and our website for announcements. I am looking forward to working with the local community, and am hopeful to establish some partnerships,” said O’Leary.
“We’ve seen first-hand Amy’s work as a member of our board,” said CCRF Board President Martin Dumic. “Amy’s new role as CCRF’s Executive Director is a natural progression and recognition of her abilities.”
