Soccer Tournament This Weekend

This Sunday, I (with the help of my family) will be hosting the 1st ever Kickin’ Cancer Soccer Tournament. There will be 13 teams. Why 13? Because it has been 13 years since I was diagnosed and treated for Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, which started my personal battle against cancer, not just in my body, but for everyone. My family and I are so thankful for the tremendous turnout and are looking forward to sharing a great day with all of the players! Friends and family are also invited to attend the tournament and partake in the post-tourney party.

Here are the details:
