In the Beginning

S.O.C.K. was originally an extension of Children’s Cancer Community based in Sonoma, California from 2003 to 2011.

Currently based in Solano County, California, S.O.C.K. was started by parents of childhood cancer-afflicted children who wanted to help other families going through the same challenges. S.O.C.K. became an independent support group, earning their non-profit status in 2011.

S.O.C.K. continues to work toward their goal of support and happily celebrated their 10th anniversary serving childhood cancer kids and their families in Solano County.

Meet the S.O.C.K. Board

S.O.C.K. is a group of dedicated volunteers. There is no paid staff. The Board of Directors is composed of parents who have children diagnosed with childhood cancer. 2021 marked our 10 year anniversary of providing services to childhood cancer afflicted families of Solano County.
