BREVARD COUNTY • TITUSVILLE, FLORIDA – Hannah’s Heroes hosted an inspirational concert with American Idol star Danny Kokey Friday evening at Faith City Church in Titusville.
The mission of Hannah’s Heroes is to bring awareness to childhood and teenage depression and to create a support system for youth and families suffering with issues related to depression.
Dr. Louis Joseph, head of the Psychiatry Department at Parrish Medical Center, supports the efforts of Hannah’s Heroes and enjoyed the concert immensely.
“It is vitally important to have a support system in a community to provide help for teenage depression,” said Dr. Joseph.
“We are all working to build a stronger support system and organizations like Hannah’s Heroes are wonderful.”
Rob Rains from the United Way was also at the concert in support of Hannah’s Heroes.
“What a great event this is for our community,” said Rains.
Liz Mikitarian, a driving force with Hannah’s Heroes, made the event happen when she wrote to Gokey’s management asking him to perform.
“I was so surprised and delighted when they said yes,” said Mikitarian.
“They have been so great to work with and we are so grateful for our sponsors Florida Cardiovascular, the Doctors’ Goodwill Foundation, BIMDA and Parrish Medical Center who all stepped up to make this special evening possible.”
The organization is now enlisting an effort to implement Sources of Strength Youth Support programming in pilot schools in North Brevard.
Hannah’s Heroes welcomes your donation of time or treasure and hope that you will help spread the word about our efforts.
