For several years now, AJ Hawk has been helping kids with cancer in a number of different ways, and last night James Laurinaitis and Bobby Carpenter helped out their linebacking brother-in-arms to help benefit the Laura and AJ Hawk Family Fund for Pediatric Radiation Oncology at The James Comprehensive Cancer Center.
Here's a little more about the fund, from Ohio State itself:
As a Lombardi Award winner for the top college linebacker and a two-time All-American during his time at Ohio State, A.J. Hawk is well known by fans around the Buckeye state and equally admired for his career with the Green Bay Packers and Cincinnati Bengals. With his wife, Laura, the two have started three funds at the OSUCCC – James to provide care and comfort for children battling cancer and their families.
Each of those three funds helps benefit kids battling cancer in different ways. The Hawk Family Fund itself helps provide young patients with ways to help them handle the stress and anxiety that comes with their situations, including interactive technologies. The Hawk's Heroes Fund gives children a special superhero outfit to wear during radiation treatments, and the Hawk's Locks Fund provides hair to children undergoing chemotherapy to allow them to regain some normalcy in their lives.
