The Joe Niekro Foundation Gives Thanks
I just returned from Atlanta where the foundation hosted Brain Aneurysm Awareness Night at Turner Field. I am amazed at the outpouring of support that fans across the country! It is so encouraging to be greeted at the various baseball parks with such big smiles, encouraging words, support and love. I want to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU! Without all of you, this foundation wouldn’t be able to do what it is doing. It’s because of YOU that we have been able to support aneurysm research, treatment and education across the USA. We are gearing up for a huge Scientific Symposium that will take place the day of Knuckle Ball, November 13th. This symposium will feature neurosurgeons, neurologists, neuro-radiologists and experts from hospitals all over the country who will come together to discuss the latest treatments, procedures and statistics on aneurysms. This is a great breakthrough for the foundation and we are so excited to host this educational platform for those who excel in this condition every day.
The Joe Niekro Foundation has such huge goals, but I am faithful and confident that these goals are well within our reach, because of the continued love and support we are receiving from people in every state of America. Please continue to share the news of the foundation so that we can continue to help others, save lives and make a difference.
Thank you everyone and God Bless the USA….the country of givers!Posted on Wednesday, August 18, 2010
