Helping children who face serious illness is a cause near and dear to us. Illness is tough on anyone, but can be especially devastating for children and for their families. With 4Change Energy, you can help us support families that have been devastated both emotionally and financially by childhood illness. When you choose Heroes for Children as your cause, we’re able to provide funding that goes toward major milestones—such as birthdays or graduations—and financial assistance to families that need help paying bills—such as a mortgage, utilities, and even travel to and from hospitals.
About Heroes for Children
Currently, an estimated 12,400 children, ages 0-20 years, are diagnosed with a form of cancer in the United States. With diagnosis comes the challenge to provide financially for the family. In order to provide constant care for their child, parents frequently lose or quit their jobs. The assistance Heroes for Children provides directly to families helps relieve some of the strain and stress during this difficult time in their lives. Whether it is to pay a medical bill, buy gas for the frequent trips to the hospital, or keep a family from having their electricity turned off, Heroes for Children is committed to helping families. There is no other organization that provides such versatility when it comes to financially assisting families. A social worker at a Texas children's hospital said, "The impact of the aid and the hope that you have instilled in these families cannot be measured." With your help, Heroes for Children can continue to assist these families and fulfill their vision that no family with a child battling cancer will fight alone.
