A Note from the Executive Director
Dear CCRF Partners,
I was introduced to Children's Cancer Recovery Foundation (CCRF) as a sophomore at Lebanon Valley College - seeking a volunteer opportunity with a Foundation that would allow me to become part of something extraordinary specifically in the area of childhood cancer. After only a few hours at CCRF's Harrisburg, Pa., Headquarters, I was completely overwhelmed by the amount of hope, support, and genuine goodness that radiated through the walls. Quickly, my future goals solidified: I wanted more than a job; I wanted a career that enhanced the lives of children as they overcame childhood cancer.
What started as a simple day of volunteering transformed into a journey of learning, engaging, and developing as a member of the CCRF team. Three different internship experiences - Event Planning, Community Relations, and Program Services - with the Foundation allowed me to gain an overall understanding of all that goes into creating smiles for young cancer patients.
I had the privilege of working under many mentors at the Foundation who instilled in me the values of a leader: honesty, inspiration, communication, and commitment.
After completing my degrees in communications and business administration, I embarked on my first full-time opportunity with the Foundation as the Program Manager. This was the perfect position to confirm my dedication to CCRF's mission. I sent Bear-Able Gift bags to thousands of children, approved financial assistance funding, and awarded camp scholarships on a daily basis. Everyday my cup overflowed with pure joy from the hope I was able to deliver to our CCRF families.
Most recently, I have accepted the Executive Director position at the Foundation. In many ways I grew both personally and professionally with the Foundation, and it is my sincere hope that I will be able to give back to the organization that gave me so much. I look forward to working with you as we make a difference in the lives of children battling cancer across the nation.
