1,800 children in Texas will be diagnosed with cancer this year. This diagnosis will touch each of their families differently, but all will be devastated. Many of them will lose their jobs, forced to choose between income and time spent by their child's bedside. There is a gap in the support offered to these families, leaving them unable to pay urgent bills and spend what might be fleeting moments with their sick children. We have an unwavering commitment that no family in Texas with a child battling cancer will have to fight alone.

Our Financial Impact Program is accomplished through a collaborative approach with our 22 hospital partners, where social workers at major pediatric hospitals communicate the immediate needs of the patients and their families. HFC responds immediately, sending funds within seven days of application.

About Us

Since 2004, Heroes for Children has provided over $7 million to over 7,600 Texas families in need through our financial and social assistance programs. There is no other organization that provides direct and immediate assistance to families with such ease when it comes to restoring normalcy and bringing comfort through each family’s journey. 

The vast majority of our funding is designated to our Financial Assistance Program, where families receive much needed emergency financial support. By providing immediate financial help it enables families to:

  • Pay essential bills and basic needs such as: rent, mortgage, utilities, etc.
  • Purchase meals at the hospital and groceries for home
  • Fertility treatment for a son or daughter
  • Help cover the cost of transportation to appointments
  • Funds to celebrate Milestone occasions
  • Funeral Assistance to help honor the life of their child

Perhaps the words of a social worker at a partner hospital says it best:

"Our families greatly benefit from Heroes for Children! You have helped families stay in their homes, keep their lights on, get to and from the hospital, put food on the table, and say goodbye to their children. We couldn't survive without you!"


Heroes for Children advocates for and provides financial assistance and social support to Texas families with children (0-22 yrs of age) battling cancer. Our vision is that no family in Texas with a child battling cancer fight alone.
