When one mom got off the bus after the tacky lights tour, she gave Lisa a big hug. Earlier that week, she received some disappointing news about her daughter's treatment. They definitely needed some holiday cheer. They found it on Connor's Heroes annual Tacky Holiday Lights tour. We had 12 families joining us on the bus. They sang holiday carols and enjoyed a catered dinner. It was magical to see the children (and adults) press their faces to the windows to get a closer look at all the beautifully decorated houses. For a few hours, you let them forget about doctors, clinics, and chemo. Thank you for giving our families a special holiday memory.
We want to thank the Richmond Christmas Mother and Winn Transportation for helping make this event possible. Captain Dan has driven the tour bus every year and always refuses to accept a tip. He even took a detour and treated us to Country Style Donuts! Another example of how easy it is to be a hero to a child battling cancer.
