Shawn's Heroes for Life (SHFL) was created in 2017, in memory of Shawn J. McMullen. Shawn, a son, a brother, a friend, a 19 Delta Cavalry Scout in the U.S. Army, and ultimately, an organ donor, lived his (nearly) 27 years making an impact on others. Even while battling his own injuries, Shawn volunteered his time assisting elderly veterans, and providing attention and comfort to hospitalized infants.
In September 2015, Shawn became a hero to many, when his selfless act of organ donation gave the gift of life to five individuals, and additionally provided two others the opportunity to see again, following corneal donations.
When created, the initiatives of SHFL were to carry out Shawn's goodness through assistance, awareness and education regarding veterans in need and organ donation. In 2018 SHFL became an established 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
Our mission is to honor and enhance the lives of veterans and those in need, and increase organ donation awareness.
