About The HERO Program:

Established in 2009, The HERO Program was developed by Wetzel, after watching a student battle cancer and desiring to do more to help him. The organization currently supports seven families and nine children through providing basic needs and services such as, but not limited to, financial assistance, vehicles, medical hospital beds, mortgage/rent payments, gas, and food. Currently, there are 34 children on the waiting list for sponsorship in the HERO Program.
