Dear family, friends, lacrosse community and supporters,
Some of you know that it is my dream -- and intention -- to have a career in
medicine and so I plan to major in a Biological science while attending Syracuse
University beginning this fall. For many reasons, the particular area of
Oncology is especially meaningful to me and I aim to make a difference in the
field: I am starting now and need your help.
After careful consideration, I have decided to raise money for the Breast Cancer
BCRF provides 91 cents of every dollar raised to find a cure.
My inspirations for BCRF are a mentor, Dr. Bob Reynolds, and special teachers
Mrs. Kimberly Miles and Mrs. Jill Smith whom have been recently fighting the dreaded disease, Breast Cancer. I am raising money to show my support
of Dr. Reynolds, two of my favorite teachers ever, and ALL who have been touched by this particular
kind of cancer. These women are special, in the fact that they can draw amazing strength from inside that they once thought never existed. I am fascinated by such, and am sincerely inspired.
I am a face-off specialist -- in lacrosse -- at Lake Highland Preparatory
School and this season I am fund-raising for breast cancer research with every
face-off WIN. In 2013 I took around four hundred draws, winning roughly
seventy-five percent of those and while this season's schedule is tougher, I aim
to improve my percentage -- for my team; myself AND for Breast Cancer Research.
Will you help?
I am confident that together, we can reach heights never thought possible alone.
My parents kick-started donations and Mattamy Homes USA will match EVERY dollar
raised through its employee support. Contributions are tax-deductible and ALL
proceeds go directly to BCRF through your pledges and donations.
Please consider emailing me at
to pledge an amount per
FACE-OFF win. In May, when season ends, I will notify you of face-offs won and
ask for that commitment to BCRF through my website mentioned below.
