Today’s Helping Hero: April

You never know what surprises pop up on Facebook. We received a message from April letting us know that she had a Facebook fundraiser. For her birthday she asked her friends to donate to Connor's Heroes instead of gifts. Her goal was $500 and she surpassed it. Way to go April!! She wrote on her page: “As the saying goes, It takes a village to raise children.This year, pediatric cancer entered my life in many ways. When a parent gets news that their child has cancer, THIS VILLAGE is there to help! Every local person I know dealing with cancer has also been touched by this foundation in the most positive ways.

Facebook makes it easy for you to hold a personal fund raiser. If you are passionate about helping the brave children who are battling cancer in Central Va., then turn your birthday into a giving day. You will make a difference to many families.
