Ed DeLaura '00 - A Good Cause
« on: September 04, 2013, 02:58:25 pm »
Eddie was a teammate of mine at SB- a great guy who played well for us and after graduating, came back all the time and routinely gave back to the program.  Not just with his money, but with his time and efforts. 

See if you can pick up a towel to help out Ed and his unfortunate situation- im getting some right now. http://www.booster.com/edwarddelaura13

update on ed's condition:

Ed has been diagnosed with stage 2 brain cancer (glioma).  Its a low grade tumor right now, however, the likelihood it will become a high grade tumor is 35-50%.  His doctors said this is rare, as in one in a million.  Ed's future is in question and the next year could be very difficult for him.  He is expecting more chemo, radiation and/or more surgery.

Ed's staples were removed from his first operation and he is feeling good.  The support has been overwhelming his wife believes it has kept his spirits up.  A lot of that can be attributed to the SB Lacrosse alumni community.  Victoria thanks you all very much.

The Fight for Edward towel campaign is now up to 196 towels sold: http://www.booster.com/edwarddelaura13

And Coach Nagle and Rob Emmerich and the team were kind enough to send flowers and also put together a video get well soon for Ed:

Very classy.  We have a great program with a strong alumni presence.  Thanks everyone for reading and for your support.  -CoB
