Saturday September 18th marked a very special day for both, Beverly and Heroes for Children. We had the pleasure of throwing a dual celebration, honoring Beverly’s 12th birthday party and her First Communion-two very big milestones in Beverly’s life!!
Beverly has been battling a form of cancer called Osteosarcoma (bone cancer). Osteosarcoma is typically found in boys 14-16 years of age and located in places like knees or elbows. Beverly’s cancer was found in places like her throat and chest which makes her story even more compelling and rare. Through Heroes for Children’s Milestone Hero program, we were able to throw Beverly the communion and birthday bash fit for a princess!
The venue was decorated brilliantly in white and pink colors, something only 3 women with daughters could stir up and pull off (thank you Emily, Leigh and Amy)! The tables were beautifully decorated with breathtaking pink flowers and the most delicious looking candy-filled glass bowl centerpieces any tween has ever seen! The only thing that could make the room look any more beautiful would be our princess, Beverly. She sat at the head of the room, in a make-your-eyes-tear-up exquisite, sparkling floor length white gown, and of course a glimmering tiara, something no princess can leave the house without!
The evening was a huge success with the DJ playing Beverly and her family’s favorite songs, the dance floor moving, and a delicious dinner from Papasito’s. Heroes for Children is truly so lucky to have the opportunity to be a part of such a beautiful evening. Beverly is one of many children, Heroes for Children helps through its assistance programs.
