Our Mission

Support the community of families and children with rare or undiagnosed conditions.

Our Vision

Any child, anywhere, without answers to their illness will have a community to turn to for resources and support to heal.

WHAT WE DO

We build support teams around families who have children ages 5-18 years old with rare and undiagnosed medical conditions.

  • We work closely with each family through our Family Services. We form alliances with top medical and research institutions and specialists to assist our children towards physical wellness. CC4C also assists with medical costs that insurance cannot cover.
  • We match each child with a Champion Teammate. Champion Teammates are celebrities or well-respected professionals who use their platform to partner with CC4C and offer unique experiences. They inspire children not to give up emotionally on the toll of their journey.
  • Each child is placed on a high school “Dream Team.” The team dedicates their season to bringing joy and inspiration to the child. The team makes their child an honorary teammate for the school year, providing unique opportunities for the child to feel a part of a team. In turn, the program inspires the student-athletes to be role models to younger children, and to live and train with care and concern for others.
  • We host inspirational events for families to create lifetime memories and unforgettable family bonding. We organize campaigns, and fundraisers to provide families a community of support through our CC4C programs, to bring awareness to the needs of this population along with covering a portion of each one of our child’s medical bills not covered by insurance.

OUR STORY

Talaya Frazier founded CC4C after her own personal experience with her daughter, Cheyanna. She turned to running marathons as a respite from the feeling of powerlessness brought on by wondering and waiting for her daughter’s diagnosis and a cure.

While training to run the Boston Marathon, Frazier was inspired to dedicate her race to a young child named Skylar whose doctors said may not live and may never walk again. Frazier told her, “You train to walk, and I will train to run and when I come home, I will give you my medal.”

Frazier was encouraged to recruit other celebrities to inspire struggling children who are at risk for losing hope, and to support families who are feeling isolated.
