2020 Hasbro Heroes Ball

The 2020 Fund-a-Need

While this important event cannot take place this year, it is vitally important to shine a light on what would have been this year’s fund-a-need: the Pediatric Hematology/Oncology program.

Caring for children with blood disorders and cancers is a complex, protracted process, as disease recurrence and treatment-related issues can result in long-term protocols, therapies, and follow-up. The silver lining is that our staff gets to spend so much time with these kids and their families, so much so that they become like family to us, too. In turn, Hasbro Children’s Hospital becomes like a second home to them.

Please watch the video below highlighting this year’s fund-a-need.

With your support, our program will provide that extra special home away from home that every child and family in our care needs and deserves. And thanks to the generous support of an anonymous donor, the first $100,000 raised for the fund-a-need will be matched dollar-for-dollar.

Thank you in advance for your outstanding support during this very critical time in the history of our hospital and community.

Thanks to an anonymous $100K match,
your donation will be matched dollar for dollar!
