What it is about
Caleb’s Pennies From Heaven is not your typical foundation. It is rather unique in its concept which is “No parent should have to prioritize a payment or job before the care of their sick child.” The foundation has lived by this motto since May 2010 as they have financially assisted more than 515 families with a critically ill child.
“Our mission has remained steadfast and that is to support parents in the care of their sick child by relieving the stress of financial burdens at home. We help by covering rent, mortgage, electric, medical bills, and much more” said Nichole.
Caleb was a little boy with an amazing spirit, infectious laugh, and energy for life that was unmatched, his mother reflected.
In February 2007 at the age of 2, Caleb was granted his angel wings after being diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor. “My family and I started this foundation as a way to help others while honoring Caleb’s memory. He inspired us to take the tragedy of losing him and turn it into something positive. Although his life ended much too soon, his legacy lives on through Pennies From Heaven and the families we assist,” said Nichole.
