i got this from the icejerseys message board and thought i would spread the word.

Quote :
one of the few positives of being forced to watch the carolina feed of tonight's canes/sabres game was that the announcers introduced me to an 11yo kid from albany who has a genetic condition that makes tumors grow on his nerves.

apparently, when the river rats moved to charlotte, he was so bummed that he asked his parents if they could follow the team, but as it turns out, charlotte has one of the few clinics in the country that actually deals with the disorder that he has, so the family is going to make the move.

if you're on facebook, for every person who "likes" the "checkers" page, $2 will be donated to the boy's family to help them move. for a few seconds of your time, it seems like a no-brainer.

id even encourage you to copy, forward, etc.

and here's a story on the kid and his family. he's already had 21 different operations including the amputations of both of his legs [Frown]
