Hometown Heroes transform pain into joy for thousands of people across the Midwest

Rome and Tiffany Frericks of Quincy are honored as recent KHQA Hometown Heroes recipients. Their child, Cadan, died in 2008 from CDH. Cadan inspired his parents to start Cadan's Carnival. An event that has generated thousands of dollars for CDH research. Cadan has definitely earned the title "hero" as well.

A Tri-State family's story of loss and heartbreak has turned into laughter and happiness for kids right here in Quincy.

Cadan's Carnival has increased survival rates for CDH patients across the region.

Our behalf of our sponsors Hilbing Autobody and Peters Heating and Air Conditioning, KHQA's David Amelotti introduces you to your most recent Hometown Heroes.
