Kidde Hero of the Week: Reece

The Hero of the Week is brought to you by Kidde Worry-Free Alarms… Be a safety hero for your family. Begin by replacing outdated smoke alarms. Learn other simple steps at Kidde – Technology that saves lives. Find out how you can nominate a “Hero of the Week” at the bottom of the page.


This week’s Hero nomination comes from our social media princess Nikita who discovered this story online:

It’s about a young man named Reece… just a normal 13 year-old teenager from Louisville, Kentucky, but “normal” changed in 2012 when he was diagnosed with Leukemia.

But, get this… Instead of using offers from Make-A-Wish Foundation for himself, Reece wanted to help others. He made a list of things he wanted to do for children battling cancer, including improving hospital rooms, funding cancer research and granting more wishes! His ultimate wish? Raise $1 million.

You can help Reece with his cause, too. Learn more about donating

By the way, Reece is doing well and should be done with treatments this November.

Kix’s Response:

I’m in, Reece – good for you, buddy!!!
