When Jimmy Bennett and the JMB foundation participated in the Tuffman fishing championship at the 44th annual Central Texas Boating Show Saturday, they recognized both girls as tough champions by presenting them special trophies.

While Layla couldn't attend, she was still recognized by the audience and will be given a trophy in the next few days.

Bennett says that he's proud to give both families a happy moment in light of such hardship.

"We don't do this for us at all," he said.

"We do this to recognize the kids. That's who it's about."
