Logan James Herr’s laughs & smiles were infectious. He was truly an exceptional child who captured the hearts of everyone who knew him. Logan was born on August 24, 1997 with cerebral palsy and died at age four with complications from pneumonia. He left behind special memories with everyone he touched during his short life.
Logan’s father, Joe Herr, didn’t want those special memories to fade. So, he founded Logan’s Heart & Smiles to pay tribute to those memories. This non-profit foundation adapts the homes of children with physical disabilities to make them safe and accessible.
Joe knows first-hand the difficulties involved in having a handicapped child. Performing everyday activities can be limiting and labor intensive. Often when a family has a handicapped child, resources for necessary home modifications are depleted or simply not available. Logan’s Heart & Smiles provides free labor and materials (based on income) to help ease the burden these families face.
