A Holiday Memory

You know what you give a family helped by Connor's Heroes? You give them a wonderful memory for the holidays. Connor's Heroes arranged for a charter bus to take families on a tour of the area's incredible holiday lights. For our hero families, this was their one chance for festive fun in between doctor appointments, unexpected illnesses and hospital stays. The whole family came, even sweet month-old baby brothers and sisters, 40 people in all. Your gifts, along with a grant from the Richmond Christmas Mother and the Altria Companies Employee Community Fund, allowed us to give everyone a catered dinner and a warm, dry bus from which to watch the dazzling lights. A special moment was singing happy birthday to our brave hero, Thomas, who passed away in April. His grandmother donated cupcakes so we could celebrate his holiday birthday with his childhood cancer friends.

You can continue to make sure a family of a child with cancer doesn't miss having memories that mean so much to your family. The gift you make to Connor's Heroes now allows us to plan our programs in 2017. You will make sure no family faces their child's cancer alone.
