Cure Childhood Cancer

Quiet Heroes History

Inspired by their personal connection to families with children fighting cancer in Atlanta, Major League Baseball superstar Tom Glavine, and his wife, Chris, joined the fight against childhood cancer in 2004. Through these relationships, the Glavines witnessed the burdens that fall on families as they struggle to maintain some semblance of normalcy while caring for a child with a life-threatening illness. A dedicated mother of five, Chris found herself empathizing deeply with mothers of children with cancer. She decided she wanted to do something nice for them – something that would honor their struggles and relieve their burdens, if even for a day. On September 10, 2005, Chris hosted the first annual A Tribute to Our Quiet Heroes.

 In support and furtherance of National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, this unique and inspiring event paid tribute to mothers of children with cancer, whose love and tireless dedication guide their families through an unimaginable journey. At the same time, the luncheon raised much-needed funds to support pediatric cancer research. Over the past 9 years, A Tribute to Our Quiet Heroes has raised more than $2.5 million for CURE Childhood Cancer.
