There is no shortage of groups dedicated to helping children and families affected by pediatric cancer.
But as Chris Winters and other advocates for fighting the disease see it, champions for boosting research funding or easing the burdens families face when a child is diagnosed need to find a more unified voice when lobbying politicians for those changes.

Just recently Sammy’s Superheroes Foundation had a great opportunity to take part in the Art From the Heart (www.jeffhasonart.com) project. A renowned Overland Park artist named Jeff Hanson started this project. Jeff is only 24 years old and is a childhood cancer survivor of brain cancer. Each year Jeff donates one of his gorgeous paintings to a non-profit to be auctioned off to raise money for their mission. The winner is chosen based on the number of likes of a post with the nonprofits logo on Jeff’s page. So to win, it took a very coordinated effort.
Passion is one of the most powerful characteristics to have in the non-profit world, which is why we are so happy to announce the addition of Todd Moss to the Sammy’s Superheroes Foundation board.

This is our buddy Darin. Darin is a great kid with lots of spunk and energy. Darin is battling neuroblastoma and has had some complications lately. We know that he's tough though and that he'll get through this.
Sammy's Superheroes Foundation is about honoring our little fighters and angels. Our fighters are those who are fighting or survived childhood cancer. Our angels are those who lost their battle. Our goal is to find better treatments and a cure for cancer so we no longer have to add to our angels and help make the quality of life for our survivors much better.
There are so many Superheroes among us! The doctors, the nurses, the volunteers, those who turn their lives to their passion for helping our little fighters and their families get through the hard times. The ones who console families when childhood cancer takes an angel. Sammy's Superheroes Foundation is proud to honor those Superheroes and let them know that we are working hard to help them with their fight against this horrible disease.
When it comes to Children's Hospital in Omaha, everyone knows Dr. Don Coulter. To many Dr. Coulter is more than just an expert in pediatric oncology. He's someone that families want to work with. His personality keeps families comfortable and hopeful. He does his best to keep smiles on his patients faces when he can! Thank you Dr. Coulter for all you do!
