Heroes Milestones

Heroes Milestones
A fourth birthday may not seem like a typical milestone in a child’s life; however, when you’ve never celebrated a birthday due to cancer treatment or hospitalization, and your family is struggling financially, suddenly a fourth birthday is the most important day of that child’s life.

Heroes for Children’s Milestones Program is a unique initiative to help families with a child battling cancer celebrate life’s special occasions.  Most of these families are struggling financially and a graduation party or celebration of life would not be a option for them if we didn’t have this program.

Celebrations have included:

  • Birthdays
  • Graduations
  • Proms
  • Quinceañeras
  • First Communions
  • Bar/Bat Mitzvahs
  • Weddings
  • Celebrations of Life

Heroes for children has provided everything from food and beverage, entertainment, outfits, decorations, venues, gifts and more for these special occasions.

Most recently, we worked with over 60 vendors, donors and volunteers to plan our first wedding!

To help us make these dreams come true, please designate your gift to the Milestones Program in the memo field. 

We rely on volunteers and sponsors to make these events possible.  If you are interested in helping or to learn more about the Milestones Program please call or e-mail Morgan Funk at 214-256-5824 x6.
