Janice Phillips: Native Oregonian and Cancer Survivor Makes Bequest to CCA

Janice Phillips: Native Oregonian and Cancer Survivor Makes Bequest to CCA
"My experience has taught me to value life. You never know what tomorrow will bring, so I live for today." – Janice Phillips

Native Oregonian Janice Phillips believes in living for today, but also recognizes the power of leaving a lasting legacy. A graduate of the University of Oregon and the youngest daughter to the former President of the Oregon Symphony, Janice's Oregon-based roots run deep. In fact, it is this profound love and respect for the Pacific Northwest that influenced her decision to get involved with the Children's Cancer Association.

In 2005, when Janice read about the life and death of a young boy served by CCA's programs while he was fighting brain cancer, she was immediately compelled to get involved and make a difference. Her own personal experience fighting a debilitating brain tumor has provided insight into battling a life threatening condition and left her with a unique compassion for the children and families served by CCA.

After years of generous support, Janice made a decision to include CCA as a beneficiary in her will, ensuring that CCA's programs will continue to meet the non-medical needs of seriously ill children and families for years to come.

Janice is now a member of CCA's Founder's Society, which recognizes the foresight and generosity of friends who have provided for the long-term support by naming CCA as a beneficiary in their will, trust agreement, retirement account, life insurance policy, or other estate planning vehicle.

For more information on planned giving, please contact us. To name CCA in your will or other estate plans, the legal name is "Children's Cancer Association."
