The Littlest Heroes (TLH) was founded in 2001 as an organization where families in need who were touched by childhood cancer could come, regardless of income level or zip code, to receive services designed to meet their economic, emotional and social needs. We understand that any family touched by childhood cancer can benefit from our services, so we work in conjunction with donors, volunteers and clinicians at partner institutions to meet the social, emotional and financial needs of all families. Over the last nearly two decades, The Littlest Heroes has served thousands of families in Northeast Ohio. It is our desire to continue to expand our reach and care for as many families as possible.
Celebrate the little heroes in our community by tuning into our Virtual Oktoberfest October 30th at 7pm. Hear from the children and families we support as well as organizational updates. We are hopeful for your support in making our 2020 Oktoberfest the best one yet!

LITTLE HERO STORY
Ryan Encinas is a 5-year-old cancer survivor who recently celebrated two years in remission after battling a football-sized tumor in his left lung. During his treatment, Ryan and his family benefited from the services of The Littlest Heroes. Our partnership with the Cleveland Browns allowed Ryan and the 24,000 fans in the stadium to experience one of the most memorable moments in their lives. On Saturday night, August 3, Ryan gathered for a huddle with the entire Cleveland Browns team, took a handoff from quarterback Brandon Weeden and ran down the field with Trent Richardson to score the most memorable touchdown of the season. Thank you to the Cleveland Browns for such an amazing memory! WATCH VIDEO
