Another big loss...

Last week, we said our goodbyes to an incredible person - Elijah Alexander. We met Eli through our NFL network here in the Dallas area and have been connected to him and his amazing wife Kimberly ever since. Several years ago, Eli began a valiant battle against multiple myeloma. During his fight against this horrible disease, Eli and Kim began the Tackle Myeloma Foundation (now the Tackle Cancer Foundation) benefitting families who are battling cancer. Through fundraising efforts including golf and poker tournaments (one that we attended just recently), the foundation has donated over $100,000 to families in need. Although cancer won this round of the fight, we will continue to battle this awful disease through our support of their foundation.

Rest in Peace Eli... You are certainly going to be missed, and you're gone way too soon...
