COLUMBUS, Ohio – Hundreds of baseball players took to the field this weekend to raise money for cancer research.
Matt Harr is a cancer patient and the son of Doug Hare, who has led the event for the past 12 years.
“Treatment is not easy. As many of our brave children know, cancer treatment is not easy, ”Har said.
Hara Callahan’s grandson Murphy was born with childhood leukemia. With this news, the Strike Out Multiple Myeloma baseball tournament is now raising money for pediatric cancer research at the National Children’s Hospital.
Har said the goal is to talk about the best chemotherapy for children.
“Those treatments work, but they are very severe, and their toxicity is harmful and makes it even harder for children to fight cancer,” he said.
The past baseball tournament has raised about $ 300,000, and organizers hope to continue fundraising and awareness to support future generations.
It will be a legacy that goes far beyond Homer.
