Chance's Story:(1/8/08) Over the summer of 2007, Chance Rodgers started to have aches and pains. Everyone thought that they were just growing pains, which would be very common in a 12 year old boy. The pains continued and further tests were done. Right before Halloween of 2007, Chance and his family received devastating news. He had been diagnosed with Osteosarcoma-bone cancer. The cancer resided in his left leg. Chance began chemotherapy and has been in and out of the hospital since. He will have surgery at the end of January or beginning of February 2008. A portion of his bone will need to be cut out and the area will need reconstruction. Chance attends Henley Elementary in Klamath Falls, OR. His school is ready and excited to rally behind their friend and "adopt" him as their sparrow for the 2007/2008 school year. Money raised from hours of community service done, will help with ongoing medical expenses and living expenses for Chance and his family.
