"Strong Like Bull"
The Ben Hughes Foundation was created in loving memory of Benjamin ‘Ben’ Hughes. Ben lost his life Thanksgiving Day 2010 after a courageous six-month fight against a vicious brain tumor. Losing Ben has been such a tragedy and The Ben Hughes Foundation wants to promote something positive from so much hurt and sorrow. The foundation will be used to provide opportunities for young brain tumor patients in the state of Arizona to attend and experience an Arizona Diamondbacks professional baseball game. It was one of Ben’s greatest moments and we hope to be able to share that exciting experience with many others who are trying to find moments of happiness while fighting a difficult battle. All of the money donated to the foundation is tax exempt under 501(c)(3) IRS guidelines.
