Tears Foundation

Hero of Compassion & Service

Each year The TEARS Foundation would like to say thank you to professionals in our community that go above and beyond to help a bereaved family during their time of need by acknowledging them at our annual Rock & Walk. 

This year we are accepting applications for Hero's of Service (first-responders, firefighters, nurses, EMT, chaplains, and doctors) 

If you would like to nominate a hero who has an impact on your family, please fill out the attached form. Each nominee will be sent a nomination thank you letter.


God bless The TEARS Foundation! They were there for my daughter through all her pain, grief, agony, and financial strain. They helped her in her saddest moment in life.
