Florida State offensive lineman Mike Scheerhorn will play in the biggest game of his life in less than two weeks, but football is not the only thing on his mind. The freshman is also looking to send a young cancer patient to Pasadena to cheer on the Seminoles.
When Scheerhorn was younger, his brother was diagnosed with a form of brain cancer. He said the diagnosis had a major impact on his family, which was fortunate enough to receive help from the Children’s Cancer Center on a daily basis. Now, Scheerhorn is looking for donations to help send a young girl who is battling cancer to the BCS National Championship Game with her parent.
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!
I have two tickets for them from my personal allocation, but I need help getting the family there.
The total cost will be around $5000 including airfares, hotel stay, car rental, etc. and it is my dream that together we can raise that money here so that the Children’s Cancer Center will not have to spend a single penny.
Scheerman has already raised more than $10,000. That means the girl and her parent will be able to head to California for the game, and the extra money will be donated to the Children’s Cancer Center. Anyone who is looking to donate on behalf of the cause can still do so.
There should be more people like Scheerman in the world. Talk about a selfless act.
