Chris Cobb is a dedicated Chemo Pals at the Children's Cancer Association (CCA).

As a Pediatric Chemo Pal Mentor, Chris helps children and teens break through the isolation, chaos and loneliness of chemotherapy and other cancer treatments. This volunteer program's purpose is to provide a supportive relationship, ensuring that each child maintains self-esteem and confidence throughout the emotionally isolating and physically difficult cancer treatment.

Chris provides support and guidance through dependable visits in the midst of the battle against cancer. He visits hospitals, clinic, and homes in order to play games, take walks, read, do art projects or share hobbies with the child or teen that he has been placed with.

Chris has been matched with four-year-old Logan for about nine months. Both enjoy board games, video games, remote control cars, as well as outside events such as Blazers Games, events, and walks.

Chris has also volunteered for the United Way, a local homeless shelter, as well as many CCA events.
