F*ck cancer. I've lost cousins to cancer, my aunt, family friends and more. Cancer affects just about everyone, Whether it puts you in the hospital bed or sitting in the chair beside it saying you can beat this. My grandma is fighting cancer for the 4th time. She is 87 and undefeated. I was just a kid when my my mom looked cancer in the face and knocked it into remission. Like I said, F*uck cancer. Now I get to fight for all of them.
Why I fight?
4 weeks before the Haymakers event I got the call saying someone got hurt and we need someone to step up. I was hesitant at first about committing to fight in a boxing match with only 4 weeks to train. I thought about it for 10 minutes before I realized anyone who has ever found out they have cancer weren't given any time to prepare for their fight. No time to decide if they do or don't want to participate. They have no choice. No choice but to find the courage to start the next day... I wrote back, "i'm in"

With 4 weeks to go, i'm stoked to get started and grateful I can be a part of an incredible organizations fighting to raise money, raise awareness and raise hope for those that need it. Fuck Cancer.
