Lexi’s world is full of appointments and procedures to treat her leukemia. But it’s also full of bubbles and ponies, baby dolls and princess dresses. Most importantly, it’s filled with joy.
That’s thanks in part to Lexi’s Chemo Pal Mentor, Collette, who’s made it her mission to bring comfort and laughter to this fairy sprite of a girl. Lexi’s mom, Amanda, says, “The best part of having a Chemo Pal in our lives is the happiness it brings Lexi. On tough days, we can always count on Collette to be there with a hug and a smile.”
Lexi is one of 255 Pacific Northwest children and teens that CCA’s award-winning Chemo Pal Mentor Program brought the joy of friendship to last year. Trained Chemo Pal Mentors devoted 7,436 hours forging and strengthening friendships and family bonds, bringing diversion, fun, and activities to kids during their treatment.
With your support, we can match even more seriously ill children and teens with compassionate adults who offer supportive relationships throughout treatments.
