Being a superhero means bringing hope to a lot of people. Just ask Henry Ebert and his friends. As Henry and his mom, Kathyrn, began planning his 7th birthday party, she introduced the idea that instead of gifts, his friends could bring a contribution that Henry could give to a worthy cause.
With one aunt in remission and another undergoing treatment for ovarian cancer, Henry and his mom knew they wanted to do something that would help cancer patients and their families. With a superhero-themed party in mind, they invited Henry’s friends to be superheroes for Hall-Perrine Cancer Center’s Hope Fund. Everyone came in costume, brought more than $200 in contributions and quickly became our very own superheroes!
If you would like to join Henry and his friends and become a superhero for the Hope Fund, please contact the Mercy Foundation at (319) 398-6206. Or, make a secure online gift.
