We closed out September Childhood Cancer Awareness Month by thanking the members of our Circle Of Heroes. The Circle Of Heroes are people who generously commit an annual gift of $1,000 or more for the childhood cancer heroes who need Connor’s Heroes.

Reynolds Gallery graciously hosted the event. The gallery is well-known throughout the art world for its contemporary art collection and exhibition. One of the directors, Julia Monroe, is a new member of our Board Of Directors. Thank you to Julia for hosting the event.

Our guest of honor was Katie, Augie’s mom. Augie was diagnosed with cancer in both his eyes before he turned one years old.

“As I looked into the eyes of my five month old child, I wondered how long he had not been able to gaze at me in return. Was I disappearing before his eyes?”

Katie also shared her gratitude for the guests — members of the Circle Of Heroes. She looked around the room and said:

“Generosity, of course, is what you see before you in this room tonight. You are truly heroes in my family’s eyes and your miracles are making a real impact on the world around us.”
