Time for us to work together and help a young man get well. Last year it was Jacob Larson, this year, it's Casey Strale. Casey is at the Children's hospital of Orange county where he had a tumor partially removed from his heart. He is in critical condition. In speaking with his mom yesterday, they are awaiting him to recover so they can start chemo on the tumor on his kidney.
I coached Casey for two years as an MPC Bull and he is a text book hard worker and hustler. He is a kid that anyone would be proud to have as a son.
I am asking each of you to send him a well wish and a jersey, hat or shirt, so that he can start a collection of all the pro teams in PIHA, MLRH and AIHL.
We all may not be on the same page or battlefield, but surely we can all rise to a great cause to help someone in need.
