My classmate, teammate, and illicit Midshipman, Dwayne Osgood was diagnosed with brain cancer this spring. As a Marine and father of three, Dwayne meets challenges head on and this unexpected event has been no exception. Throughout the diagnosis, initial planning decisions, and enduring treatment, Dwayne has kept up a positive attitude and inspired all those in his presence.
Dwayne has run the Marine Corps Marathon several times and previously vowed to never run the marathon EVER AGAIN. Well, he's running it again, this time under the National Foundation for Cancer Research to prevent, enhance detection and ultimately CURE cancer.
Within minutes of D telling a bunch of Old Goats that he was going to run it again, several guys rogered up to run the MCM with Dwayne.
Please help me support Dwayne by donating to the National Foundation for Cancer Research.
