I think it is something we should all be involved in, but we normally don’t until it personally affects us.
Amarillo, Texas (PRWEB) September 12, 2013
In 2010, Levi Knebusch’s daughter, Madison Knebusch, was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. After fighting the disease valiantly, her body succumbed to the disease in January of last year, at the young age of 16. Knebusch learned through his experience how important blood transfusions are to those battling cancer and from then on committed himself to service work. “It is one of the biggest ways that I can handle my grief. I think it is something we should all be involved in, but we normally don’t until it personally affects us,” Knebusch explained.
As a result of his commitment to this cause, Knebusch has been asked to throw the first pitch at the annual Boots vs. Badges game that will take place this Saturday, September 14, 2013 at the Amarillo National Bank Sox Stadium located at 3303 E. 3rd Street in Amarillo, Texas. Gates open at 6:05 p.m. and the game begins at 7:05.
Knebusch stated, “Boots vs. Badges is an annual fundraiser, in which the Amarillo Police Department and Amarillo Fire Department face off in a charity softball game to wrap up a summer blood drive competition between the two groups. The proceeds are split in half between Coffee Memorial Blood Center and the Texas Panhandle 100 Club.”
When asked if he felt excited to be throwing the first pitch he exclaimed, “Of course! But, really, it’s an honor more than general excitement and the girl that will be catching is an 11-year-old cancer patient suffering from leukemia. I’ll be flying in on the Lifestar helicopter and she will be flying in on the sheriff’s helicopter. Her name is Carla Contreras—she’s the real story here.”
