  • How did you get involved with the CAC?:

    My wife and I have been supporters of the Castaways for a while now, but when my mom died in 2010 from MDS, the fire in me was lit. I don't want to lose anyone else I love to cancer, nor do I think anyone else should have to. We've made so many advances in medicine, and I want to do my part to ensure we finally kick cancer's butt!
  • In his own words:

    "I'm honored to be a part of this mission. This is one of my greatest accomplishments. God Bless."
