A TRIBUTE TO OUR QUIET HEROES

WHAT IS QUIET HEROES?
A Tribute To Our Quiet Heroes is a luncheon hosted by Chris Glavine, wife of Tom Glavine, and designed to pay tribute to mothers of children with cancer, whose love and dedication help to guide their families through the difficult journey. The event raises awareness and much needed funds to support pediatric cancer research at leading children's hospitals nationwide.
"This event is providing extremely overburdened moms with a break," Chris Glavine said. "But even more than that, this event, with the money we raise, is an important part of the overall effort to find a cure."
