If you live in South Carolina and have a child with a diagnosis of cancer, check out Children’s Chance– they help support South Carolina children and their families facing pediatric cancer with non-medical needs.
* Family Support Funds Program helps pay for non-medical bills such as mortgage/rent payments, electric bills, car insurance, car repairs, and other non-medical, everyday expenses. All funds are paid directly to vendors.
* Angel Funds Program helps families with out-of pocket expenses such as gas, food and phone bills. These funds are especially helpful to families who must spend time in the hospital and away from the comforts of their home.
* School Supply Bash provides children with cancer and their siblings free school supplies.
* Counseling Program provides funding for counseling fees for any member of family who has been touched by pediatric cancer. Services are available while the child is in treatment, after treatment ends, and for those families whose child loses their battle with cancer.
* Children’s Chance also hosts “An Evening with the Gamecocks“, a very special evening where children and their families can dine and hang out with the University of South Carolina’s football team and coaches.
