Even Heroes Need a Hero:
The Foundation 4 Heroes

By Jay M. Lipoff, D.C., C.F.T.

Foundation 4 Heroes is a 501c.3 nonprofit organization founded by parents who realize how fortunate we are to have healthy families. We wanted to create a way to embrace children, and their families, who have a child facing medical issues, and support them.

Our motto is “ Even Heroes Need a Hero ” and that is a testament to the fact that the children we interact with, many struggling with terminal diseases and the loving families that support their fight, have proven time and time again that they are the real Heroes – with immeasurable strength and fortitude. 

The mission of the Foundation 4 Heroes is to reinforce a path for a positive future by promoting the superhero inside every child. We recognize and embrace our responsibilities as role models and will inspire and teach children 4 rules to “Be A Hero.”

(1) Always do the right thing

(2) Never give up

(3) Listen to your parents, or another trusted adult and

(4) Never be a bully, by being kind to others

We encourage the children to believe in themselves, fulfill their dreams, and overcome obstacles while lifting their spirits and being supportive of their unique needs.
