Tina and her Chemo Pal

Thank you for generously giving to CCA.  Your support helps makes it possible for hundreds of seriously ill children to find friendship in a Chemo Pal®.  Here is a recent story about just one of our magical Chemo Pal matches.

Tina and Laurie were introduced to each other through CCA's Chemo Pal program last August while Tina was undergoing treatment for cancer for the second time. The two became fast friends and focused much of their designated 'gal time' around activities that they could do together. Tina and Laurie signed up for cooking classes, cherished their side-by-side pedicures and were sure to include Tina's little sister, Shayla, whenever possible. Laurie stayed by Tina’s side when her treatment schedule changed, helping to provide fun and distraction throughout the last months of Tina’s life. Many precious memories stem from friendship between this dynamic duo.

Because of you, we can continue to create moments like these for seriously ill children. Thank you!
