Each month, we receive hundreds of submissions from families all over the world, sharing their stories as well as photos of their children. If you would like to feature your child as the Hero of the Day, send us a photo of them to our Facebook page.
My daughter, Alyssa, is my hero. She does not let her many challenges get in the way of her happiness and has a way of making those around her happy! My girl lights up a room with her smile and inspires others with her positive attitude and determination. Even though she suffered a stroke that resulted in cerebral palsy, epilepsy and a feeding tube, she will not allow her disabilities to define her. She leaves a little sparkle wherever she goes and continues to shatter barriers along the way! I am so proud of her and all she has accomplished!
Amber is my youngest daughter. When I came back for vacation because I work overseas, my wife told me that Amber didn’t know how to smile. I always tell her to keep smiling because papa and mama will take good care of her and she doesn’t need to worry. After a day we saw her smile. It’s my pleasure to share my daughter to the world even though she has CP. We love her so much. Our love of Amber is unconditional.
This is my grand baby, my light and love, Sophia Rose. I’d like to nominate her for Hero of the Day. She has CP and many other challenges. She inspires our entire family everyday with her strength and determination. She is our hero…everyday!
Here is my daughter Kylie, she is a senior in high school this year! She has spastic quad CP. She took 3rd place at MN state adaptive bowling last year, she’s smart and has a ridiculous sense of humor.
She is my daughter ‘Amal’ which means HOPE. She is going to be 4 years next month, can’t even sit. But she our hope is the reason we feel alive. My wife is a super hero to take care of our daughter so nicely.
This is my sister-in-law Alletta Everett and she is 44 years young. She loves people, loves to laugh and enjoys “talking” on the phone. She is a friend to almost anyone she comes in contact with. I would like to nominate her for hero of the day, but she is my hero everyday. She made it when doctors and specialist swore she wouldn’t live more than a year when she was born. Thankfully today, technology is much more advanced and there are more treatment options available than when she was growing up.
Ryland is 3 years old. He has Cerebral Palsy and Epilepsy as a result of HIE (a traumatic brain injury that occured during his birth). Despite multiple surgeries, being non-ambulatory and non-verbal, Ryland has truly come a long way in the past few years in therapy, and has developed his own form of communication. He is such a silly, happy little guy and always lights up every room he is in!
This is my 17 year old beautiful daughter Dora that has cerebral palsy and scoliosis. I just got her back from Vietnam in January 2016; she had been out of my life since age 6. She is an absolute blessing in my life. She’s going to have a back operation soon to straighten out her spine and I’m going to try to get her dislocated hip fixed. Two hospitals said they wont do it, so I’m going to Shriners next. I would travel the whole world to get her hip fixed I just want to post this picture of her to let parents know to never give up hope for their children!
This is my grandson Isaac James who is 4 years old. Isaac has cerebral palsy along with other disabilities. He is such a ray of sunshine. He amazes me daily with his determination to overcome all obstacles with a smile on his face.
This is our little Hallie; she is definitely our Hero as well as our little miracle fighter. Hallie has Dystonic Cerebral palsy, which causes muscle spasms, hypertonia, pain and falls, she also has Global development delay and Sensory issues but nothing will stop that smile. At 2 years 8 months Hallie hasn’t said her first word and we are praying for another miracle, just to hear this. Love from her proud Mummy + Daddy.
I would like to feature my Godson Kavante for hero of the day! He’s 12 years old non-verbal wheelchair bound, trach & feeding tube needed. He loves ABCs, 123s, colors (his favorite is red), and Disney movies.
