The Power of Philanthropy

Every child needs a hero they can turn to—someone to support them in their time of greatest need. At Phoenix Children’s, our Heroes Circle members answer the call.

Heroes Circle is a select group of our most committed donors who care deeply about the health and well-being of the children in our community. Together, they fuel the lifesaving programs and services that help us provide the best possible care for patients like Braden and their families.

When 5-year-old Braden showed his parents a lump on his jaw in mid-March 2022, they thought he had hurt himself while playing. But when it didn't go away, they became concerned. A couple months later, their concern turned to fear when a biopsy showed that Braden had myeloid sarcoma, a rare cancerous tumor common in people with acute myeloid leukemia.    
Braden started aggressive treatment within days of the diagnosis. He endured four cycles of inpatient chemotherapy, each 30 to 40 days long, over a six-month period. Donor-funded programs like Child Life, animal-assisted therapy and art therapy made the lengthy hospital stays a little more bearable for Braden and his family.
Over 30 years ago, Phoenix Children's saved the lives of Cindy and Joe Jensen's twin daughters, who were born 12 weeks early. Now, as Heroes Circle members, Cindy and Joe feel blessed to be able to make a difference for children like Braden and their families.
