THE STORY:

$17 dollars and I'll send you a bottle of sunscreen with a scantily clad photo of my sexy body on it. Come on... you know you want one...

We need to raise some money for Cancer for College. I love these guys and summer is coming and sunscreen with sexy photos of me on it make a great gift. No better way to say "I love you" to that new special someone.

If you do give $17 and you want sunscreen...you need to send me & Greg your mailing address. You can email it to Greg at greg@cancerforcollege.org

Let me give you my spiel and then I dare you to not give $17 dollars.

Maybe you will want to give $117 dollars. of $17,000.

Since 1993, my good friend Craig Pollard, who is a two-time cancer survivor, and Cancer for College have helped hundreds of cancer survivors realize their dreams of a college education.

Craig was a fraternity brother of mine. At the age of 15, he learned that he had developed Hodgkins Disease. He is hands down the strongest person I know. He didn't let cancer run his life and continued to live a normal life and even excelled in school. He survived cancer twice before attending college.

Families dealing with cancer use every last resource to fight the disease in the effort to keep their child alive. Life savings and retirement plans are drained by medications, operations and experimental procedures often not covered by insurance. How do you plan for the future of a child who might not make it through year’s end? College dreams are forgotten just trying to keep your child alive.

This is why Cancer for College was started. To help cancer survivors and their families be able to afford the opportunity to attend college.

The stories of the cancer survivors are so inspiring. What they are able to accomplish while dealing with so much makes me feel like a slacker. Not really though because I have attended their annual Golf Classic event to help raise money for scholarships. Check out my pro golf swing in images 3, & 7

Please help support this unbelievable cause. To many kids battling cancer, college is the last thing on their mind. We need to help them realize that college is still an option.
Nothing should stand in the way of someone's dreams.

Every dollar really helps. Thanks

Will
