Throughout the year, businesses, foundations and other groups support Connor's Heroes with significant contributions. Cash donations and in-kind gifts provide the majority of income for Connor's Heroes outreach. Due to their generosity, we can be in the hospital every week and say to a family whose son or daughter is in treatment for cancer: "I'm with Connor's Heroes. How can I help?"
