Our teammate Jerry Bryan was diagnosed on May 2nd with stage IV Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Jerry has already gone through two rounds of chemotherapy, with probably more rounds to come. With Jerry’s medical bills adding up the club is currently looking into a fund raiser to help Jerry. In the meantime, a Go Fund Me page has been set up by Jerry’s finance Katie.
