About us


At a.k.a. CameoCourage we are committed to helping those in need.
I am a cancer survivor. I was lucky enough to have a stranger come up to me while I was on vacation. It just so happened he was a professor of dermatology. I was on a boat cruise enjoying the beautiful view in Hawaii. After he introduced himself, he asked me to promise to have a mole on my back checked. I politely said thank you and kind of shrugged it off. After about a month, I decided to have it checked out and it was indeed a melanoma. I was truly blessed as it turned out to be melanoma in situ which is also called stage 0 melanoma. It means there are cancer cells in the top layer of skin (the epidermis). The melanoma cells are all contained in the area in which they started to develop and have not grown into deeper layers of the skin. If melanoma is recognized and treated early it is almost always curable. If it is not, the cancer can advance and spread to other parts of the body, where it becomes hard to treat and can be fatal. While it is not the most common of the skin cancers, it causes the most fatalities. Due to this amazing encounter, all I ended up with was a very large scar on my back.

Our goal is to motivate and lift the spirits of those in need! is committed to doing this through creating and sending you custom shout out pictures. We can hold up a sign saying, “Stay Strong, Mike,” “This too shall pass, Mary,” Happy Birthday, Jake,” “Mean people suck,”“Itʼs just a bad day, not a bad life, Steve.” Get creative as this is for you and it's all about lifting the spirits of people in need. will also make personal appearances for a child or person in need of a smile or a hug. We canʼt be everywhere, but we are committed to trying to give back to those who need that extra motivation to keep on moving forward and face another day with courage, optimism, and hope.

The service that is providing is completely free. This is my family’s way of paying it forward to others. If you are able please support one of these amazing organizations: National Alliance on Mental Illness, Heart of a Hero or ComiCare, who provides boundless enthusiasm and brightens the day of hospitalized children by delivering comic books, please feel free to donate.

Heart of a hero

Ricky Mena / Kendall Mena

Since October 2014 Heart of Hero has made visits to over 15,000 children around the world which includes homeless, special needs, disabled, autistic, fostered, and both children battling life threatening illnesses. 

Spider -Man, Spider-Gwen, DeadpoolCameo and the rest of the team at Heart of a Hero knows just how much of an impact a visit from their hero can lift not only the spirits of children, but also the support system surrounding them. 

Each visit is unique and special and so is our approach. We strive to visit children from a therapeutic standpoint rather than an entertainment based one. Our goal is to leave a lasting and positive impression on children by tapping into their imagination and using the image of various characters as a pathway to do so. Also, this helps to assist them in building confidence and over coming trauma as well as reinforcing their ability to overcome and believe that they can. 

Heart of a Hero shows up for all underprivileged and ill children at no charge. We also arrive baring gifts. We at Heart of a Hero accept both monetary and new toy / clothes donations which are a critical part of keeping these services free for all children in need.
