Connor's Heroes is a Richmond, VA based nonprofit dedicated to helping our community's families cope with childhood cancer and our community's researchers conquer it. They provide hope, guidance and support directly to families whose child is undergoing cancer treatment throughout their respective journey. Their Bags & Backpacks program provides support to families at the time of diagnosis to help them through this time of crisis and relieve some of the stress. Parents receive tote bags full of practical resources like toiletries for long, unexpected inpatient stays, vouchers for local restaurants that deliver to VCU, and gas gift cards.  

Volunteers will assemble toiletry bags for the parent totes bags which they give parents at the time of diagnosis. Supplies will be provided. Project will take place in THC 310.
