Our Story

Our Mission:

Heroes for Children advocates for and provides financial and social assistance to families with children (0-22 years of age) battling cancer.

Our Vision:

Our vision is that no family with a child battling cancer will fight alone.

Our History:

Heroes for Children was founded by Larissa Linton and Jenny Dowen in memory of their daughters,  Taylor Anne Brewton and Allison “Allie” Leigh Scott who both passed away from Acute Myeloid Leukemia.  Read more about how these mothers turned their tragedies into their life’s work to help others. 

How We Help:

Since 2004, Heroes for Children has provided $5.5 million to more than 5,000 families in need through our financial and social assistance programs.  There is no other organization that provides direct and immediate assistance to families with such ease when it comes to restoring normalcy and bringing comfort through each family’s journey.
