Child actor Chalet Lizette Brannan is only fifteen years old but participates in many philanthropic endeavors and helps make the world a better place.
She was diagnosed with Burkitt lymphoma at the age of 10. After five and a half months of difficult chemotherapy, she recovered. “After that experience, I developed a softness in my heart for cancer survivors, especially kids with cancer,” Brannan said. “I knew I had to do something to give back.” Brannan is currently the new ambassador for Along Comes Hope, an organization that is run by a top notch person and cancer survivor. She volunteers with BASE Camp Children’s Cancer Foundation, visiting children in the hospital. She is also proud to serve as an ambassador for Make-A-Wish, which helps fulfill the wishes of children with serious illnesses. “These organizations are close to my heart as a cancer survivor,” she said. “I know how hard it is to be a kid with cancer, and I want to make it a little easier for some children. The Make-A-Wish program does wonderful things to bring children joy at such a critical point in their lives.”
