Several years ago I was diagnosed with cancer. There were so many questions at the time and I was scared. I had always been in peak physical shape and had competed at some of the highest levels of sports.
My battle with this disease included surgery and several brutal rounds of chemotherapy. I lost my hair, 40 lbs, and I vomited 10-15 times a day. Fighting this disease was the hardest thing I've ever done, but these treatments eliminated the cancer. I'm alive today because of cancer research and the funding that made it possible. However, there are still too many lives and families affected by cancers that receive little or no funding for research.
For the last three years I've been teaming up with Bruins and Trojans as part of Rivals United for a Kure, an event held by Kure It to raise money for underfunded cancer research. All of this year's proceeds will be divided equally and given to the UCLA Jonsson and USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Centers.
This year our goal is to net $500,000 to fulfill our million-dollar pledge to UCLA and USC. I invite you to make a donation to my Crowdrise page. Every dollar matters and together we can beat this disease. Please make a donation by clicking on the blue donate button. Thank you in advance for your support!
