Haymakers For Hope via Crowdrise
September 17, 2012
Having had some recent boxing experience made me sort of a natural fit for the Haymakers for Hope event. A close friend of mine had brought it to my attention and I immediately was interested in the opportunity to help raise funds for cancer research.
Unfortunately cancer affects almost everyone either directly or indirectly. We can all say that we know a relative or a friend that has been fighting this insidious disease.
On a personal level and almost simultaneous to hearing about this event my cousin (who I consider my brother) developed an illness thought to be just appendicitis. Only to find out a few weeks later there was a malignant tumor inside his appendix. The prognosis is very positive and the doctors believe taking some precautionary measures will ensure my cousin’s health going forward. That said, all that has transpired makes the importance of cancer research hit home that much more! I’m truly honored to have this opportunity to make a small difference.
