We started with… a backpack

We started with… a backpack. Connor gave out the first Heroes Backpack to his best friend, Owen. He filled it with toys, stuffed animals and many Legos – Owen's favorite! That one backpack launched our first program, Heroes Bags and Backpacks. We officially started in January 2007. Since then, you allowed us to give Heroes Bags and Backpacks to more than 1000 families who are in treatment at Children's Hospital of Richmond and with VCU Massey Cancer Center. With each one, I remember one of our first angels, Owen. He will always be a dear friend to my family. Thank you for allowing us to make sure that no child faces his/her cancer alone.
