Super Jake


A story of strength, bravery, and the super power of one little boy that is always fighting for you; Super Jake!

"Super" Jake Robert Widman was 4 ½ when he earned his cape. He battled neuroblastoma, a rare and deadly form of pediatric cancer for more than a year. In his short life, Jake taught lasting lessons about bravery, courage, and strength. He loved superheroes, especially Spiderman, so naturally he wore a cape everywhere he went.

To honor Jake, and bring strength and hope to other families that are battling neuroblastoma, Jake’s family started The Super Jake Foundation, which has raised more than 2.5 million dollars since its inception in 2005. No one in The Super Jake Foundation earns a salary, and 100% of the profits go directly to fund research and help families. Things like iPads, a family car, a new bed, and airfare have been supplied to families. If you would like to volunteer, make a donation, or apply for a grant to The Super Jake Foundation, please visit www.thesuperjakefoundation.org.

“I am Super Jake, strong as can be, and as long as the leaves grow back on the trees, I will fight alongside anyone who fights alongside me.”

You are brave. You are strong. You are super; just like Jake.
