Cancer Heroes of the Carolinas was started by a mom whose own child had battled Leukemia bravely for 3 years. Having experienced a child with cancer first-hand, Cancer Heroes of the Carolinas was formed to meet the needs of these Brave children and their families. Although the child has cancer the whole family is affected by a cancer diagnosis. One, if not both parents, lose their income due to countless hospital stays and what seems to be never-ending doctors’ appointments. The family is torn apart while the sibling or siblings and at least one parent is constantly with the child with cancer. Cancer Heroes of the Carolinas helps with Medical Bills, and anything from Electric, Water, Mortgage/Rent payments, Insurance, Gas, Food and so many other needs.
Cancer Heroes of the Carolinas also helps the children with their morale and also helps the parents, as typically there is not a lot of support for the entire family. It is our mission at Cancer Heroes of the Carolinas to help the whole family battle cancer and heal afterward.
There are no paid board members and all of our volunteers strictly work because of their love of these children. By volunteering or giving to cancer Heroes of the Carolinas you are making a difference not only and the child that has cancers life but in the entire families as well.
Financial assistance is important of part of Cancer Heroes of the Carolinas. Your gift will allow us to provide toys, books, and other essential, non-clinical items to make their hospital stay feel a little more like home. It permits us to provide everyday needs of the family; mortgage, food, bills and many other needs.
We have a variety of volunteer needs which occur throughout the year, and we would appreciate your willingness to support our cause. It takes only a small amount of time to make a big difference in a child's life. There’s no better feeling than knowing that you have helped ease what can be a trying time for patients and their families.
We are an organization that raises money through events to benefit and help those precious children and their families that have been impacted by cancer. Support these activities either by attending the event as a participant or as a volunteer in a variety of ways in the coordination of the event.
By becoming a sponsor, you help to defray some of the administrative costs of the event and allow more proceeds of the event to be distributed to the children and families that need our support the most. Our goal is to distribute over 95% of proceeds directly to servicing our families.
Our son Danny was diagnosed with Childhood Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia when he was 8 years old. By the grace of God, and the help and caring of so many, including Jennifer he is thriving at the age of 13. Jennifer and Cancer Heroes of the Carolinas reached out to me in the beginning; and, was a much-needed source of support. She understood what a mom dealing with their child's diagnosis is going through. My family appreciates all the help and love received from Jennifer and her organization. From Lily Palooza to just being a phone call away - it meant the world to know someone like her cared.
“Cancer heroes was a blessing to my family when my daughter (15) was dying of cancer. They helped me with flowers, food, financial assistance, and emotional support through that awful time in our life. I don't know what I would have done without them. They have also been there for me and my family in these times after her death. They are a wonderful organization who gives to family's who are going through such an awful time in their life. They were and are a blessing in my life."
My 4 year old son Baxley was diagnosed with Stage 4 Rhabdomyosarcoma on March 22nd, 2019. To say our world flipped upside down would be an understatement but with the help of amazing people like Jennifer and Cancer Heroes of the Carolinas it was so much easier to process the emotions and realize that they were here to help us during this awful time. Jennifer has walked down our same path so she has become a wealth of information for us and a shoulder to cry on. We’re so appreciative that Jennifer found us!
Cancer Heroes or the Carolinas has helped our family so much; from helping us with a bill or finding a babysitter while we go to the ER. And when there wasn’t anybody else, Jennifer herself came to the ER to help with my two little ones while I was with Jayden in the ER. Cancer Heroes or the Carolinas has also provided our family with tickets to be a part of special events like the Boo Aquarium and the Monster Truck show. These events that we are able to go to are so important to Jayden, because he’s able to forget about all the sick days, procedures, and surgeries. Cancer Heroes or the Carolinas has taken the financial burden away so many times while we were in the hospital for weeks at a time. We are so thankful for them and everything they continue to do for us.”
Our son, Trey, was diagnosed Lymphoma at age 11. During his chemo and radiation treatments, we always knew Jennifer was there for us. Being a cancer mom herself, she has a huge heart for helping the families of children with cancer. Thank you, Jennifer for your tireless efforts! Your generosity means the world to each family you reach out to.
Cancer Heroes of the Carolinas, could not have come at a better time in our lives than when they did!. l asked a fellow church member if she could pass on our information to them. Our family still being "Shell Shocked" from the cancer diagnosis, we were helped and comforted like a warm, cozy "Linus Blanket" that we forever will carry around with us. Please help support this local nonprofit so they can continue to provide help for families of Georgetown and Horry Counties
