The mission of Holiday Heroes is to provide joy and entertainment to children who are seriously ill by hosting themed hospital parties each month. Over the last decade, Holiday Heroes has become an established partner for children's hospitals across the country with a growing national footprint.
Holiday Heroes delivers a little fun with a big impact. As part of our hospital party experience we offer themed age specific activity boxes, catered meals for the family, and gift cards. We are also able to have Superheroes visit in person and virtually with these special children.
Every 30 seconds a child is diagnosed with a life-threatening medical condition. Holiday Heroes partners with hospitals to provide happy distractions for children confined to the hospital. We take a child's mind away from the stress and anxiety of being in the hospital with a day of play, thereby promoting better recovery from their illness.
"Holiday Heroes experiences have not only positively impacted the pediatric patients but have helped our medical team, such as nurses or doctors, quickly build rapport and bridge the gap with our patients, by being able to upon meeting a patient give them a positive distraction to focus on during their hospital stay." - Katelyn Beyer, Coordinator of Child Life Services at Evanston Hospital and Certified Child Life Specialist
