Super Jake Foundation Hosts 4th Annual 'Heroes Bash' on Nov. 8 to Benefit Pediatric Cancer Research
Date:11/5/2008

Superhero Costume Contest, Grants for Families and Honors for Corporate

Support in Fighting Childhood Cancer and Assisting Families Affected

GURNEE, Ill., Nov. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- This year you can wear your Halloween costume twice and raise money for pediatric cancer research and families of children with cancer who need help in paying medical bills and other necessities. Hundreds of Chicagoans are expected to turn out in their favorite super hero costumes at this year's Super Jake Foundation Super Jake & Friends Heroes Bash on Nov. 8 at the Northbrook Hilton in Northbrook, Ill.

"The five-year survival rate for neuroblastoma is only around 30 percent and that hasn't changes in 40 years," said Ann Fahey-Widman, executive director and founder, The Super Jake Foundation. "Our mission is to find a cure through funding scientific research while also supporting families who need assistance with some of the everyday, basic necessities that can go unattended to because of the resources and time fighting this disease takes." Fahey-Widman and her husband created the 501c3 non-profit organization in response to a promise she made to her son, Jake Widman, on the day he died -- pledging to work to help alleviate the unnecessary suffering from neuroblastoma and other forms of childhood cancer. Jake succumbed to the disease in 2005.

At this year's annual costume bash, several families with children suffering from pediatric cancer will receive needs-based grants for necessities such as furnaces, beds and bedding, and medical and household expenses. In addition, Abbott, a global diversified healthcare company north of Chicago will be honored with The Super Jake Super Hero Award for its ongoing corporate support for The Super Jake Foundation since its inception. Finally, a grand prize will be granted to the best super hero costume. The event costs $100 and includes dinner, dancing, open bar, and a silent and live auction. To RSVP, log on to
