It's Christmas. No matter what that means to you, it presumably involves giving. That's why we'd like to point your attention to an online fundraising campaign started by Florida State offensive lineman Mike Scheerhorn.
When my brother Daniel was diagnosed with Medulloblastoma - a form of brain cancer - it was devastating to my entire family. Everything changed in a heartbeat. While Daniel's medical team worked to cure his cancer, we soon found that it was going to take more than medicine for our whole family to beat this thing which had so suddenly and dramatically invaded our lives. The Children's Cancer Center understands that, and we were fortunate to receive their help. They provided all kinds of day-to-day support for our entire family at a time when we needed it most.
Now I would like to pay that kindness forward, so I'm sending a child and her parent to the BCS Championship game in Pasadena!
Scheerhorn, a freshman who hasn't played in any games after transferring from Valparaiso, has given up his two-ticket allotment to the family in question. But he needs $5,000 to get the family to California. He's raised a bit under $2,000 as of now.
It's Christmas. Let's make it happen.
