Sure – they have talent, work hard and are persistent, but that could be said of anyone who is successful.
What these childhood cancer survivors share is their refusal to allow cancer to define them, despite what they were told. If there were role models, they would not be the exception. Next, they stumbled upon opportunity, without which their success would not have been possible. What if there were an organization that worked with each child to find opportunities and provided access to them.
Today, there are no organizations committed to improving the long-term quality of life of childhood cancer survivors. That is why we came together to form ccThrive. Guided by our team of the leading experts and with your support, we are ready to help these kids who have suffered so much.
Only with your contribution can our ccThriver program bring role models to thousands of children and their families at children’s hospitals across the country. Kids should not surrender their dreams to cancer.
