A birthday party became a giving party

Many of you met Savanna at this year's Heroes Art Ball. She's come a long way since her diagnosis of Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). It was with great joy that she celebrated her 10th birthday. Instead of asking for presents for herself, she asked for items to put in our Heroes Bags and Backpacks. I asked Savanna what she enjoyed most in her Heroes Bag when she started treatment. She said she loved the book Tom Sawyer. I can see how beautiful passages like the following would take a child away from the boredom of the hospital and into Tom's carefree world: 

“All the summer world was bright and fresh, and brimming with life. There was a song in every heart; and if the heart was young, the music issued at the lips. There was cheer in every face and a spring in every step.” 

You can turn your next birthday party into a giving party just like Savanna did. Our website has a wishlist of items we need for our Heroes Bags and Backpacks. Download the list or donate $10 to Connor's Heroes using our secure donation site.
