CC4C, Cheyanna’s Champions 4 Children, enhances the quality of life for rare or undiagnosed children by building support teams for them and their families.

Each Champion child is placed with his/her high school “Dream Team” and is dedicated an honorary teammate for the school year enabling the feeling of inspiration, confidence and community.

Each CC4C Family has funding available to them through CC4C’s Financial Assistance Program. This program helps cover medical expenses insurances do not cover or deny.

Each CC4C Child has the opportunity to participate in our new Mental Health and Wellness Program. The Mental Health and Wellness program was created in efforts to support the CC4C children and their entire family.

CC4C holds inspirational and uplifting events to raise awareness and funds for our families while building courage, confidence and strength in our CC4C children.

A Message from our new ED

CC4C is excited to announce our new Executive Director, Jill M. Johnson. She will oversee all operations, and will work with the board and staff to develop an even brighter future for CC4C! Jill brings more than 25 years of experience in nonprofit management, legislative advocacy, pediatric healthcare and faith-based services to CC4C. She has worked for the Texas House of Representatives (Office of the Speaker), the Children’s Hospital Association of Texas, Samaritan Counseling Center, and Bethany United Methodist Church, while also running a freelance writing business. Jill graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a degree in organizational communications.

“I am honored to build on the amazing vision set forth by founder Talaya Frazier and her team of volunteers, as we continue to surround children and families who have rare or undiagnosed conditions,” says Jill. “I’m also grateful to board chair Barry D. Burgdorf who, along with board members Robyn Alcorta and Dr. Victoria Gregg, worked faithfully during the transition and search process to find a good fit for CC4C.

“Our family had to create a new normal after both our children were diagnosed with difficult chronic health conditions,” continues Jill,  “and we would never have made it through that challenging time without the grace and loving embrace of our friends. I look forward to fostering that kind of community for our CC4C families.”

Jill will start November 5 and would love to meet CC4C families, volunteers and supporters. “I will be in the office on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11:00 am to 3:30 pm the next few months, but I am also available at other times and places. Just give me a shout and let’s get a smoothie or coffee!”
