Summer is here, and while most families are out barbecuing and having pool parties, other families aren't able to enjoy it like the rest. The local non-profit "Heroes in Plain Sight" hosted a party specifically for families with children facing terminal illnesses, striving to give them a chance to get out and socialize despite having a life-limiting diagnosis.
"Well our thought was, let's all come together and provide each other's resources,' so there's a camp for medically fragile children," said Megan Schomer. "We all offer something different and so not only, bringing our families together to learn about each other's programs but so that our families can meet each other's families."
6 On Your Side highlighted the non-profits holiday party last December.
Megan Schomer began raising support for the cause after her son Corwin passed away in November 2016. The organization's mission, according to their website, states "We want to support medically fragile children and their families. We offer advocacy, support, education and services throughout their difficult time".
