Being diagnosed with cancer is not only an attack on one's health - It is an attack on one's childhood. For many of these kids, a cancer diagnosis means that they can’t go to school or visit their friends - instead, they must spend hours on end getting treatment in the hospital. So many kids dream of making new friends, meeting their ultimate role models. At CCChampions, we make these dreams a reality. CCChampions is a network between professional athletes and kids who have cancer. CCChampions develops unique one-to-one, long-term friendships between athlete and child. At our special induction ceremonies, each child is given a customized jersey, a personal scrapbook, and is introduced to their newest role model - a professional athlete. The CCC Friendship is uniquely facilitated for several months, growing into a lasting, meaningful one-to-one relationship during the first months of intense cancer treatment.
Last year, we launched our very first chapter in Pittsburgh, PA with the Pittsburgh Pirates and Children's Hospital. The Pittsburgh chapter has been extremely successful, and we are so excited to bring CCChampions to Providence this May! Our team consists of partnerships with Hasbro Children’s Hospital, Brown University, Warren Alpert Medical School, The Prout School, a local elementary school, the Pawtucket Red Sox, and local athlete alumni.
