ATLANTA -- Police never caught the thieves that broke into the Chance home. Never found their computers loaded with pictures of their son fighting cancer. But the violation, fear, and disappointment they felt that day faded. In its place, something unexpected grew: kindness.
You might remember Patrick Chance: he's pretty hard to forget.
He is undergoing treatment for neuroblastoma. He spends a lot of waiting room time building LEGO creations. In January, he and his mom came home one day to a broken door. In the middle of the day, they'd been robbed.
Televisions, computers, and cameras were snatched. Patrick's little wallet was also taken. It included money he'd been saving for the LEGO Death Star. 11Alive News shared his story.
