WHO WE ARE & WHAT WE DO
Grief Heroes is a nationwide grief program provided by the Joan L. Kidd MD Fight for Life Foundation a 501-c3 nonprofit organization headquartered in Florida.
Our Grief relief programs are developed to improve the lives and mental wellbeing of grieving children & teenagers.
The age-appropriate grief workbooks help our young ones understand and cope with grief. The combined story and workbook gently guide the children and teenagers through the labyrinth of confusion and difficult emotions.
They learn that they are not alone and that every feeling is ok.
OUR GRIEF BOOKS IS A SELF HELP TOOL FOR FAMILIES
By using our Grief books, adults and families of grieving children have an opportunity to take responsibility and action towards healing, rather than becoming frustrated by the lack of information and support so often encountered by families facing grief.
Schools & Organizations
We specialize in age-appropriate self-help grief workbooks for children and teenagers. We also provide education for parents/adults and professionals.

About A Boy And A Super Dog
Since 2009, Founder, mother of four, and cancer survivor Susan Binau has developed and donated grief resources to schools and other organizations in multiple countries.
In 2013, her nine-year-old son Andy handed her a stack of papers and said, "Mom, I wrote a book, will you read it?
Sadly, Andy had lost a friend to cancer and secretly wrote an uplifting book to comfort his friend's grieving sister.
Astonished and proud, Susan helped him turn it into a real book, and since the day it was published, mother and son have joined forces to help grieving children and teenagers.
