When parents receive the devastating diagnosis, of course their first thoughts immediately turn to the health and well-being of their child. But cancer touches the entire family in various ways and creates unforeseen financial hurdles especially when one parent is forced to take a leave from their job to care for the child. Suddenly, every day expenses like groceries, gasoline, food, hospital parking and related transportation costs take a toll on the family budget. There is little help for these families. They are left to figure things out on their own.
Since 2001, The Littlest Heroes has had the privilege of supporting children throughout Northeast Ohio afflicted with cancer and their families through our various programs. The Heroes Family Fund provides thousands of dollars in short-term assistance for acute financial needs that result from a child’s cancer diagnosis and treatment. The Adopt-a-Family program, which takes place in November and December, matches donors with parents who are struggling to find the time and money to purchase presents for the holidays. Our Monthly Meal program provides family meals to the pediatric oncology units at our partner hospitals and our Art for Children’s Sake program gives children the opportunity to express their feelings through painting.
We truly appreciate our partnership with the generous organizations throughout Northeast Ohio who see the importance of these wonderful children and families and our role in serving them. Childhood cancer devastates a family in many ways. The goal of The Littlest Heroes has always been to make the lives of the families just a little bit easier during this trying time. It is only with support from organizations like yours that we are able to continue our work.
