About the Heather Brooke Foundation
The Heather Brooke Foundation, a non-profit organization founded in 2007, was established in honor of Heather Brooke Tepper, by her mother Michelle Tepper. The Foundation’s mission is to provide assistance to children with debilitating illnesses with a major focus on cancer research and awareness. The Foundation’s goals are to help sick children in the local community, work with other major charities who are improving the quality of life for children with debilitating illnesses, and to support the research being done at Johns Hopkins Hospital to find a cure for Ewing Sarcoma as well as other childhood cancers.
In 2002, Heather was diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma at the age of 16. After nearly three years of fighting this rare childhood bone cancer, Heather’s valiant battle ended on April 3, 2005. Her loving spirit, unfaltering courage and determination to live a full life during this time were an inspiration to all who knew her. To read more about Heather’s story, please visit the website:
