Fun Times with Connor's Heroes
We had a great time with Connor's Heroes at the Winter Wonderland and Holiday Ball event. Connor's Heroes is one of our favorite organizations that is doing fabulous things in the community and for families of children with cancer and other life threatening illnesses. Lisa Spickler-Goodwin's family has walked in the shoes of diagnosis, treatment and (thank God) victory over illness.
#TeamBolton has personally benefited from many of their programs. From decorating Mireya's room on the transplant unit both times (so beautifully) and supplying it with lots of games, activities and princess garb to keep her mind busy throughout her stay there. Their backpack and tote bag program provides families with meals, gas cards, grocery cards, and the backpacks for the kids is filled with an assortment of goodies to help get them through their clinic visits and hospitalizations. They were thoughtful enough to include a Mommy/Daddy pack for our stay with Mireya. They visited with us at the hospital and also loved and supported Jalen, our Super Hero Donor Big brother through both of his hospitalizations.
We've enjoyed several family activities sponsored by Connor's Heroes. We love their SuperHeroes and Sidekicks program. Each of the children has their own personal Sidekick they are able to spend time with doing a variety of activities. They all LOVE their sidekicks and spending time with them individually and collectively. It's such a blessing to have these types of activities we can do together as a family.
