Paolo with family friend

Youth Football & Cancer Awareness

My 8-yr old nephew Paolo Banchero, own his own thought to honor his grandmother who recently underwent a double mastectomy by raising money for the Susan G. Komen Foundation in her name. Paolo had his dad help create a page and is now close to meeting his goal. On Saturday October 23rd all football games in his league are being played in honoro of breast cancer survivors and he'll have a donation booth on site. We're just proud that this was his idea and he followed through. He's also posted on his link another link to his team's football highlights from last year (Eric missed out on that team!).

I think that is such a remarkably sweet demonstration of how much Paolo cares about his grandmother. Children seem to know more about how adults feel than some adults do...This helps me deal with my father undergoing lung cancer; thank you Paolo!
