You’re invited to join the American Childhood Cancer Organization and the Alliance for Childhood Cancer for the 7th Annual Childhood Cancer Action Days. This two-day event in Washington brings our community together to advocate for important childhood cancer issues currently before Congress.

Your Voice Matters:
A strong showing of advocates at Action Days 2018 is more crucial than ever. We will be at a critical point in the legislative process on several key issues for children with cancer. Sharing your story in Washington this spring will ensure the voice of children with cancer is heard loud and clear!


  • Monday, April 23rd: Issues and Advocacy Training at the Washington Marriott at Metro Center Hotel (775 12th St NW, Washington, DC 20005)
  • Tuesday, April 24th: Kick-off breakfast and pre-scheduled meetings with Members of Congress and their staff on Capitol Hill
  • Registration is now open! A registration fee of $50 per family will help cover expenses, including breakfast and lunch on training day for all attendees. A limited number of scholarships will be available (see registration page). Transportation to/from Childhood Cancer Action Days is the responsibility of those attending.

Hotel Reservations:
The Alliance has a room block ($209/night) at the Washington Marriott at Metro Center Hotel for the nights of Sunday, April 22, Monday, April 23rd and Tuesday, April 24th.
