Survivors and Caregivers Turning Pain into Purpose
Jonny Imerman is the founder of Imerman Angels. While fighting cancer at 26 years old, Jonny had loving support from family and friends, but never met anyone his age who was a cancer survivor. He wanted to talk to someone just like him, someone who truly understood and remembered – someone who had already faced the same type of cancer.

About COCAcon 2021


Survive and Thrive
COCAcon’s theme this year is Survive and Thrive. We have lined up some great keynote speakers to talk about survivorship and the challenges of childhood cancer. Another aspect of Survive and Thrive we will address is in recognition of what all COCA-I camps experienced in the past year. Join great sessions about surviving and thriving as a camp in these most challenging times.

Virtual COCAcon
Attendees will be able to join this year's conference virtually. This virtual conference will provide an opportunity to include more people from your organization! It will provide connection, networking and professional development to help members expand their knowledge and excel in their abilities to provide excellent programs for children with cancer and their families.
