Why a "Heroes Bash?"

Children battling cancer need superhuman strength to get through their ordeal. In Jake's case, his Superman shirt and cape helped him feel like a superhero, giving him strength throughout his heroic battle with cancer. The last photos taken of Jake, just one week before his death, are of him in his Spiderman costume outside the doors of Children's Memorial Hospital in Chicago. The Heroes Bash honors his memory, and celebrates the extraordinary courage of all the children currently fighting cancer every day.

About The Super Jake Foundation

The Super Jake Foundation -- dedicated to helping kids win the battle against cancer -- is a national 501c3 nonprofit organization established to honor Jake Robert Widman, who, at age three, was diagnosed with a rare and deadly form of pediatric cancer called neuroblastoma. Super Jake fought his courageous battle for more than a year, enduring 10 rounds of chemotherapy, four surgeries and three bone marrow transplants. Although physicians said he was in clinical remission in February 2005, he suffered a relapse a month later and died on May 27, 2005. Jake's family then established The Super Jake Foundation to fund and find a cure for neuroblastoma.
