National BraveHearts Day - April 28th

In 2015, the BraveHearts for Kids organization founded National BraveHearts for Kids Day. The Registrar at National Day Calendar proclaimed the day to be observed on April 28th, annually.

Jeremy and Amy Jacobs founded BraveHearts For Kids in 2008 after their daughter Ava was diagnosed with Medulloblastoma brain tumor at only 13 months old.

BraveHearts for Kids helps save the lives of children. It provides information, hope, guidance, and resources to families dealing with a childhood cancer crisis. They offer their services at no cost. Additionally, 100% of individual contributions go to support programs. These programs also include emergency fundraising and 1-on-1 mentoring. The programs match families with a mentor who has experienced a similar diagnosis and crisis with a child of their own.

There are over 1,500 national days. Don’t miss a single one. Celebrate Every Day® with National Day Calendar®!
