JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Be a Hero Baker! Every child deserves a birthday party, right? Hero Bakers is rallying volunteers to help throw birthday parties for local children who are homeless or victims of domestic violence.

You don't have to be the Cake Boss to help! Just grab a cake mix and whip up some cupcakes. You could also contribute small gifts from the dollar store.

Every Hero Baker party gives gifts to all the children who come and special recognition to the birthday boy and girl.

The parties go on every month. You can come or just donate items or funding.

If you can help please email our volunteer coordinator, Margie Cox: Coxcoke@aol.com

And another good note! FCN told you how Margie's husband, Bill, was battling stage 4 throat cancer at Mayo Clinic. Margie was still throwing the Hero Baker parties and taking care of her critically -ill husband.

Tests have come back and Margie says her husband is now cancer free!
