MENTOR – On Sunday, family and friends gathered to remember a young life cut tragically short during the third annual “Bowling for Heroes,” event in Mentor. “His smile was contagious,” said Heather Goss. Heather is trying to smile through the pain of immeasurable sadness since the death of her son Jacob, 9, after a long fight with brain cancer. “He just lit up the room,” said Goss. “He never asked why and he never got down. He inspired so many people.” More than $8,000 was collected through the organization “The Littlest Heroes,” to help pay for medical bills during the event at Freeway Lanes of Mentor.
Donate to the Goss family and others impacted by pediatric cancer.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?
Ryan Encinas is a 5-year-old cancer survivor who recently celebrated two years in remission after battling a football-sized tumor in his left lung. During his treatment, Ryan and his family benefited from the services of The Littlest Heroes. Our partnership with the Cleveland Browns allowed Ryan and the 24,000 fans in the stadium to experience one of the most memorable moments in their lives. On Saturday night, August 3, Ryan gathered for a huddle with the entire Cleveland Browns team, took a handoff from quarterback Brandon Weeden and ran down the field with Trent Richardson to score the most memorable touchdown of the season. Thank you to the Cleveland Browns for such an amazing memory! WATCH VIDEO
