Heroes for Children is a non-profit organization assisting Texas families with children battling cancer. Most people can imagine the great financial stress a cancer diagnosis places on families. The expenses during a cancer diagnosis even with great medical insurance can devast a family. In addition to medical bills, costs incurred include gas, tolls, expensive food from a hospital cafeteria, a parents time off work for appointments and hospitals stays with the child. The list seems endless on top of raging a battle to save your child’s life. Did you know families with children diagnosed with cancer are 5-7 times more likely to file bankruptcy compared to the average person?
Heroes for Children is a non-profit helping to ease the financial stress on families dealing with childhood cancer. Heroes for Children offer direct financial assistance to help families maintain housing, utilities, and other life sustaining necessities. In order to continue helping families who need it most, Heroes for Children needs your help to raise funds to keep these programs available to cancer families. So how exactly can you help? Attend Hold Em’ for Heroes, an Austin poker tournament to benefit Heroes for Children. Grab your buddies, bring your wife, or have a girls night out playing poker while enjoying a delicious meal and cocktails, plus you have the opportunity to earn great prizes if you have the winning hand. All proceeds from the event fund Heroes for Children programs benefiting children fighting cancer. I will be attending the event in honor of my son, Gunner who is battling leukemia. I hope to see you in Austin!
