was formed on September 25, 1996 by two mothers who had daughters
battling cancer. The organization was started to fill in gaps among
the current services provided for pediatric cancer patients and
their families. Children’s Chance & our Ambassador Zig the Pig
exist to assist children with cancer and their families
throughout South Carolina with non medical needs. Children’s Chance raises money to fund a
variety of programs to meet the financial, emotional, and
psychological needs of the pediatric cancer patient and their families.
Children's Chance is the only statewide non-profit organization that
assists families solely with non-medical needs such as paying
mortgages and electric bills and providing families with gas, food,
and grocery cards!

For the past few years, we
have shared stories with you about the
miraculous outcomes experienced by our children
who have cancer and oftheir families. It is always uplifting
for us to share stories with you about a child
overcoming cancer and beating the odds or of a
family emerging stronger from their experience
of winning the battle with this devastating
illness. Unfortunately, it doesn’t always play
out that way for some of our families.
If you watched the
University of South Carolina win the 2010
College Baseball World Series, you saw Rob and
Risha Teal. The story about their son Bayler was
a touching reminder that not all stories have a
happy ending. Bayler was an avid Gamecock fan
and had been adopted by the 2010 baseball team.
His fight to overcome cancer was an inspiration
to the entire team. They developed tremendous
respect for such a brave, young warrior. Bayler
dreamed of seeing the Gamecocks win the World
Series but did not live long enough to see it
happen. The Teals are but one of the families
that have been involved with Children’s
Chance... Click Here to
