John Theissen, of Seaford, will be honored on "Steve Harvey" Tuesday. Theissen, founder of a Wantagh-based foundation that raises funds and toys for children's hospitals, was named a "Harvey's Hero" (a regular feature on the program.) Per the show: 

"As part of his appearance on “Steve Harvey,” John will be surprised by the Rochel family from Wantagh. The Rochels' youngest daughter, 11-year-old Caitlyn, has battled cancer three times, and each time, John was there to help the family with whatever they needed.
