December 29th, 2017 | Philadelphia, Pa – First Heritage Mortgage Services is committed to raising funds for Cookies for Kids’ Cancer, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to funding pediatric cancer research. It was founded by a determined mother to help increase her young son’s odds in his fight against cancer. She had the idea to bake cookies to sell during the holidays. It was a larger-than-life event, and a huge success.
Throughout 2017 the employees of First Heritage Mortgage Services have held several fundraisers for Cookies for Kids’ Cancer. One of our more successful fundraisers has been our clothing drive. Over a 2 month period First Heritage Mortgage Services collected over 180 bags of clothing, a total of 2,188 pounds!
Pediatric cancer is the #1 disease killer of children in the U.S. Two-thirds of children who do survive will develop long-term side effects, including secondary cancers and organ failure, a result of the very treatments that once “cured” them. This is why it is critical we find safer, more effective treatments. And it’s why we, First Heritage Mortgage Services, are joining the fight.
