Wrestler's Cancer Fundraiser

Recommended Posts

I am a former Cornell wrestler who was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma 4 years ago.  Fortunately, I am still well enough to actively do something about it, which is why I am partaking in a fundraiser for the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF), raising money to help them find a cure.  A couple years ago I partook in an arduous 10-day trek with my wife in Patagonia as part of MMRF’s Moving Mountains for Multiple Myeloma program.  We managed to raise over $30,000, every cent going towards research - corporate sponsors cover the actual cost of the trip.

This year I am off to Alaska, trekking in an area where rumor has it there are more Grizzlies than people!  Below is a link that provides additional information on the program as well as my fundraising page.  If you are a patient, spouse, care giver or medical professional, please donate if you can.  Every little bit is appreciated and makes a difference.

I'm bumping this as I am off to Alaska in less than 2 weeks.  After that, this will slide down the thread and most likely disappear!! 

I'm from a large wrestling family.  After competitive wrestling, several of my siblings remained involved in coaching, administration and one brother is a D1 ref (who actually had the opportunity to ref an Ok. St. / Iowa U match!).  Me, just an avid Cornell Wrestling fan.  My sisters, they tolerate.

Wrestling is a HUGE part of our lives.  The wrestling community is FAMILY to me, which is why I am reaching out to you for assistance.  So please, check out the link, take it in, and if you are in a position to donate, please consider it.  Last, and certainly not least, I want everyone to know I am doing well with the battle.  It's not going to go away,  but I'm confident I will keep it at bay well into the future.
