Why did you originally get involved with LLS / TNT?
Getting to meet the honored heroes throughout the season was key for me connecting to the mission. It made it so much more personal. At the time, TNT was the only game in town. I didn’t know of anything else like it. They were the crucial to the growth of the sport. The timing was right and TNT was doing great things.
I lost my dad in 2012 to Multiple Myeloma so LLS became very important to me because I now was personally impacted by a blood cancer. That is why I enjoy working with LLS now. I want to give back and support the mission because it has affected me on a very personal level. The sport has changed but I still think LLS play a crucial role in the sport and giving back to those patients.
