Celebrating children who inspire those around them with their strength, resilience and warmth - this is the concept behind Little Heroes.
An initiative started more than four years ago, on Wednesday The Examiner officially welcomed three more heroes to the family.
Ten-year-old Angus Button lives with cystic fibrosis, but that doesn't stop him from doing the things he loves including bike riding, gymnastics and swimming.
According to those who know him, he has taken his incurable genetic disorder as a reminder to live life to the fullest.
Jemma Guy, who was born 27 weeks premature with a rare chromosome deletion, never stops smiling.
The seven-year-old also doesn't shy away from hugging people she's just met and has been described as resilient, happy, excitable and tough.
While Alex Self spent the first 25 weeks of his life fighting kidney failure, now the six-year-old dreams of being a doctor or a pilot.
He may have spent years in and out of hospital, but his illness has not hindered him.
In welcoming the trio into the Little Heroes family, The Examiner's acting editor Corey Martin said the optimism of all involved was inspiring.
"All of our Little Heroes have overcome their own challenges, but their resilience and positive outlook on life is definitely something worth celebrating," he said.
"Since its inception, Little Heroes has been a great community initiative.
"There are many businesses who have embraced the idea and donated their services to help make these kids' days a little brighter.
"Those people in particular we would like to thank for their continued support."
On Saturday The Examiner will feature the remarkable stories of Angus, Jemma and Alex, with special thanks to the following businesses, groups and individuals for their ongoing support.
Wally from Whitelaws, who has backed Little Heroes since the beginning; Sharron from Blast Balloons who donated decorations; Andrew from Launceston Camera House for the printing of images; Spotlight for assisting with costumes; Mark Baker who initiated Little Heroes; past Little Heroes, their families, carers and friends; all the health professionals who have assisted with ongoing treatments; and Lou Partridge of the Tasmanian Health Service.
