About Chai Lifeline

We suffer the pain of illness or loss.
We experience the isolation
that comes from feeling different.

But Chai Lifeline gives us
The joy of childhood.
The fun of friendship.
The compassion of people who care.
The courage to live full lives.

When you see us,
look past our sickness, disability and loss.

We are the faces of hope. See us for who we are.
