Chronic and terminal illnesses impact the lives of tens of thousands of children daily in the United States. These conditions affect not only the everyday life and activities of a child but present challenges for parents, siblings, families, and friends. Children with chronic and terminal illnesses also require extensive therapies and medical care all of which can come at a great cost, to families financially and emotionally. All for the Kids Day, a national day of recognition, provides hope and support for these kids and their families.
In an effort to raise awareness, The Hope Foundation of the Mahoning Valley, saw the need for assisting these families right in the Mahoning Valley. But he knew that the need for assistance reached well beyond the valley. So Anthony joined with a national network of organizations, community leaders and legislators all sharing a mission to proclaim May 15 the National All for the Kids Day in March of 2016. In December 2016, Gov. John Kasich signed Ohio HB 580 into law, which included companion legislation offered by Senate Minority Leader Joe Schiavoni, D-33, establishing the National All for the Kids Day for May 15.
