Youth CCChampions

1413488788.png

Hi! I’m Sidney, founder of CCChampions. I graduated from Brown in 2013, and when I was a sophomore there, I met a young cancer patient named Andy who changed my life forever.

When I asked Andy who he wanted to be when he grew up, his eyes lit up and he said, “I WANNA BE A BASEBALL PLAYER!”

You see, any time you mention baseball to Andy, there is such a magic in his eyes. You can tell in that moment, he totally forgets about cancer - and is just a kid again.

My friend Lauren passed away from cancer when I was a kid, and so seeing the magic in Andy’s face opened up my eyes to a world of inspiration I never knew existed. Andy taught me that inspirational role models are so much more than just entertainment. To kids with cancer, they’re a reason to keep believing.

Andy inspired me to start CCChampions.

We’re a Pittsburgh nonprofit that helps kids with cancer, through 6-month-long friendships with the most inspirational people in the community - athletes, artists, policemen (and everyone in between)! Since 2011 we’ve helped 150 kids, been featured in the Harvard Business Review & Forbes, named a Top 100 entrepreneur in the country by Stanford, and honored as a Hero Among Us by the Boston Celtics.

I started working full-time on CCChampions during my senior year in college. And three days after I graduated, I came back home to Pittsburgh to launch our hub. Together, we can build 100 magical friendships for kids with cancer in Pittsburgh in 2015 -- and change the way child cancer patients survive the cancer journey forever.

I try to wear Andy’s passion and bravery on my sleeve wherever I go, and I hope you will too.

Let’s share the magic!

Sidney Kushner
Founder & Executive Director,
CCChampions
