Course Map:


Founded in 2001, The Littlest Heroes exists to provide emergency financial assistance to children and families in Northeast Ohio battling pediatric cancer.  We step in as the last resort for families when they are about to have utilities turned off, cars repossessed, and homes foreclosed due to financial constraints arising from treating a child with cancer.

In addition, The Littlest Heroes provides monthly grocery and fuel gift cards, monthly hospital parking vouchers, essential items and gifts for the whole family during the holidays, and weekly dinners served to the pediatric cancer units of each of the three major area children’s hospitals. With the generous support of supporters like you, we become their safety net when they need it the most.  Together, we can assure that no child fights alone!
