Brett Kaden

Jestin Schulte 

Jestin Schulte is a lacrosse player from Grand Rapids, MI who is currently battling osteosarcoma. Recently, he underwent a 6 1/2 hour limb salvage surgery in which they replaced his femur with a cadaver bone. Jestin has begun a very long road to recovery that will encompass 10 cycles of chemotherapy, further treatment and intense physical therapy. Jestin is now mobile with the assistance of crutches and will be working toward becoming weight baring. He will also need to learn how to walk again.

David Alexander

David Alexander is a lacrosse player from Winchester, VA who was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive bone cancer called chondroblastic osteosarcoma. Upon evaluation and 10 rounds of unsuccessful treatment, specialists determined that Alexander would require a major surgery that would have amputated most of his lower body followed by lengthy hospitalizations and continued chemotherapy with only a 25% chance of survival. Facing these horrific odds and valuing quality of life, he made the courageous decision to stop his cancer treatments and find peace in his remaining time.
