Haymakers for Hope’s mission is to knockout cancer by literally fighting for a cure. They give everyday people like me the opportunity to fight back against this terrible disease by training for, and competing in charity boxing events to raise money and awareness. So this May 14th I will put on the gloves and step in the ring to fight my opponent… but the real battle is to raise funds to find a cure.
While training has been an incredible challenge, it is nothing compared the fight of cancer survivors. In just the last month, two dear friends, both young mothers with families, have been diagnosed and have begun their fight against this awful disease. I carry them in my heart every day, and can only hope that my efforts can raise some much needed funds. And I hope I can land a few good shots in their honor on fight night.
We have all been touched by this awful disease. Defeating it will not come from the work of one doctor or donor. But collectively, we can help to deliver cancer a knockout punch. So please consider making a donation today, or buying a ticket to the Rock n’ Rumble (stay tuned for info).
