Jaeden Hart Benefit

AeroCare touched down in north Lubbock Saturday, but their flight plan was to celebrate a life as opposed to saving one. '

"We just came to be part of the benefit for the family," said an AeroCare crew member.

That family is the family of Jaeden Hart. Jaeden, tragically, lost her 2-year-old life in late June after suffering wounds from being burned by sparklers. AeroCare wasn't alone in showing their support. As many as 40 area businesses, along with six live music acts, came together with one goal.

 "The goal today is really for us to be able to pay her hospital bills and other expenses we've incurred since her accident," Jaeden's mother Jaquetta said. 

Jaquetta would never have guessed her little girl would have such a huge impact.

"It's amazing that a little bitty person affected so many people. I thought that she just affected me, but it seems she affected everybody," Jaquetta said.

Also there were some of the men who tried their hardest to save Jaeden after her accident.

"Most of us have children of our own and we just want to reach out to the family and do what we can," Fireman Lt. Mark Hampton said.

Hampton is in charge of Fire Station 13 in north Lubbock.

"I like to think we always give 100% but when there are children involved, we give 120%," Hampton added.

As for little Jaeden? Her mother believes that she is looking on from heaven and would even have some things to say about the benefit in her name.

"She would probably tell us to make it big music, because she loved to dance and she'd be running around chasing the puppies and having a great time," Jaquetta said.
