Through our initiative, Commercial Collection Agencies of America Gives Back, a portion of the proceeds of our annual conference along with individual members’ donations, have been given to the Bone Marrow & Cancer Foundation.   

At the Association’s general membership meeting, CCA of A President, Pete Roth invited members to suggest charitable organizations which would benefit from a donation.  Member, Warren Pinchuck suggested the Bone Marrow & Cancer Foundation, which helped his daughter, Hope.  Overwhelming support for the suggestion was heard from Pinchuck’s fellow members and soon a vote passed.


The Bone Marrow & Cancer Foundation supports patients, their families and caregivers every step of the way during a cancer diagnosis or bone marrow, Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation (HCT) or cord blood transplant. Founded in 1992 BMCF is dedicated to improving the quality of life for cancer and transplant patients and their families by providing vital financial assistance, comprehensive resources, educational information, physician referrals, and emotional support programs.  Guided by a medical advisory board of nationally recognized cancer specialists and working with hospitals across the United States, BMCF  is the only organization of its kind that does not limit assistance to a specific disease, type of transplant or age range.
