“Reason this person is a Gold Ribbon Hero: My son Aric is a brain cancer-fighting superhero. When he was 8, a softball sized tumor was removed from the back of his brain. 3 years later, he started volunteering his time to fight homelessness. Today he’s 15. Although he’s blind in one eye and has very little vision in the other, he plays football, wrestles, and has helped the homeless in Orlando, Florida, and in Pontiac, Flint, Detroit, and Grand Rapids, Michigan.” – Adam B.
