Are a charity dedicated to improving the lives of children diagnosed with cancer. It is not set up to support cancer research or to raise money for hospital equipment but to raise money to support the children with cancer and their families directly. It's hard to say how long these children have left and so the aim of the charity is to put a smile on every childs face who is undergoing cancer treatment.
Our Registered Charity (No 1126419) was established following the serious & difficult times Reece & his Family were going through after he was diagnosed with cancer just 2 weeks before his 2nd birthday. From this point forward Reece's Dad saw many children reach the brink of death and so decided to do something for the kids. The fund was purely set up to ensure terminally diagnosed children have the most fun they can with their time left whilst undergoing treatment
Child Cancer - The Enemy:
Kids cannot fight cancer alone! Often those who recover have damaged lungs, kidney failure, a bad heart or weak bones as the chemotherapy process does not only kill cancer cells, it also kills good cells. Parents have no choice at this stage as the alternative is unthinkable.
Wherever cancer attacks it devastates the whole family, but never more so than when the victim is a child. When a child is diagnosed with cancer it hits the family both emtionally and financially such that many families change their work patterns to fit around their child which often results in giving up work altogether, spending days, weeks & even months at a time by the side of their ill child.
Little Heroes raise money to enable these ill & very brave little children to be as happy as they can be and to create an opportunity to smile for however long they have left of their lives. Raising money through events & sponsorship is obviously of massive importance.
A Main Event:
One of our main events within the year is The Diamond Gala Charity Dinner that is held annually and always a spectacular evening and a money raising success which is supported by a fantastic line up of celebrities from the Sporting & Television world & local dignitaries such as The Lord & Lady Mayoress of Bradford, Bradford City Football Club, Bradford Bulls & Leeds Rhinos.
Little Heroes work to raise money to help ill children and you could be one of the people that helps to make a sick child smile. This may be one of the best and kindest things that you do in your life.
