“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
Margaret Mead 

Our Story

The Heroes Foundation exists because of people who confronted cancer and fought the good fight. The spirit, determination, and commitment of these people to survive are the legacies and characteristics that spurred the Foundation. Conceived in October 2000, the Heroes Foundation started as an idea among friends. Vince Todd Jr., was fighting his own personal battle with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and wanted to assist others that suffered from similar diseases. Vince ultimately won his battle. His optimism coupled with the unconditional support of his family and friends created the spark that ignited the group. An idea that resulted in the Heroes Foundation was born.

The organization officially took the name, Heroes Foundation, in May 2001. As a registered 501(c)(3) public charity, the mission of the Heroes Foundation is to provide meaningful support to cancer patients, education to promote cancer prevention and resources to advance research for a cure.
