With Mother’s Day around the corner, many of us are naturally thinking of ways to show our mothers just how much we love them. Lets face it–they’ve seen us through the good, the bad and the ugly. It’s truly a thankless job. The story of Biosanes and our health and nutrition products begins of a mother’s love and concern for her daughter. So, naturally Biosanes was excited and proud to donate product to the attendees of Heroes and Handbags–an annual luncheon and fundraiser benefiting Heroes for Children–hosted today at Dallas’ Hilton Anatole Hotel. HFC is an organization that provides financial and social assistance to families that are residents of Texas and have children living in their home that are battling cancer.
Heroes for Children was founded in 2004 by Larissa Linton and Jenny Scott in memory of their daughters Taylor Anne Brewton and Allison “Allie” Leigh Scott, who both passed away from Acute Myeloid Leukemia. Through loss, these brave mothers saw hope and opportunity as they experienced first hand the struggles that other families were encountering above and beyond the emotional aspects of watching their children and young loved ones fight cancer. The fear of losing a home, paying the electricity bill; or, simply struggling to make everyday payments are daily realities for many families fighting cancer in Texas and the United States. Through private donation, social programs and events like Heroes and Handbags, Heroes for Children has provided over three and a half million dollars in program services since its inception.
According to their website:
In 2011, Heroes for Children fulfilled 904 requests for financial assistance. The need for our organization continues to grow. With more awareness of Heroes for Children comes more requests for funding. Heroes for Children strives to continue with the ability to fund each and every need. Without your help, we would be unable to do so.
