This year's beneficiaries will be

Acee Mae Bennington & Gary Ouellette

Meet our 2018 Superhero Acee Mae Bennington

Acee is the 2 month-old daughter of Jason & Tenisha Bennington, and little sister to Jovi, Brooks and Nash. Acee was born on July 8, 2018. She was six weeks premature and has a host of disabling and life-threatening issues. The most prominent issue is a neurological disorder called Bilateral Perisylvian Polymicrogyria (PMG). She also has Arthrogryposis which causes her to have contracted appendages. Though there are a lot of unknowns, she is a fighter and a special spirit. Thank you for your support.




Meet our 2018 Superhero Gary Ouellette


Gary is 18 years old. He was diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma, a rare malignant tumor. Though the tumor has been removed, Gary is now undergoing several rounds of chemotherapy and radiation.

He will be hospitalized for the majority of his treatment making it difficult for him and his single mom to earn money. Primary Children’s Hospital has been wonderful, they are working to cover most of medical expenses. However, they could use our help to ease the stress and financial burden of medical spend downs, medications, traveling expenses, and everyday living expenses.

Heroes For Families

A 501(c)3 non-profit organization, "Heroes For Families" was founded on the behalf of Carissa Hansen with the goal to financially help families with children battling cancer.

The Hansen family was immensely grateful for the support they received during their own daughter's battle against this life-threatening illness.

Heroes for Families works year round to reach back out to the community, particularly to the families who are battling cancer, and give back that same support that the Hansen family received.

In memory of Carissa Hansen who died in 2006 from a brain tumor
