Heroes for Children, a Texas nonprofit organization, provides social and financial support to Texas families that have a child battling cancer. Since 2004, Heroes for Children has given nearly $6 million to 6,000 families. They work with hospitals to identify and provide emergency financial assistance directly to families in need, and are the only organization in the state that helps finance funerals and fertility preservation. Because the impact of childhood cancer is felt by the entire family, they arrange activities for the whole household at events in DFW, Houston, San Antonio, and Austin. Heroes for Children ensures that no family fights alone.
