My Story

Cleat was diagnosed with Medulloblastoma (a brain tumor) on March 17, 2008. After battling a year and a half of radiation and chemo, he has spent the last year and a half trying to regain his strength by lifting weights and participating on the wrestling, football and golf teams. He was selected as a 2009 Riley Champion and a Thomas A Brady Comeback Award Winner. Throughout his journey, Cleat has shown great courage, determination and compassion for others. Back in 2008, Cleat's buddies shaved their heads to support him in his fight to beat cancer. Now, Cleat would like to return the favor and help support other cancer warriors by shaving his head!
