Team Bennett the Warrior
We were obviously struck hard when our brother, Bennett was diagnosed with cancer. We felt we needed to do something so we decided along with Bennett to raise raise money to help find a cure for children's cancer.
Bennett was diagnosed in February, 2017 with a form of non-Hodgkin lymphoma, called Burkitt lymphoma. Burkitt lymphoma is a type of cancer that originates in cells of the immune system, called lymphocytes. Burkitt lymphoma is the most common type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma in children. It often grows first in the lymph tissue of the head and neck, including the tonsils, or in the abdomen. Today, more than 90% of children with Burkitt lymphoma are cured of the disease.
Bennett has been undergoing treatment at the Children’s Cancer Institute at Hackensack University Hospital with the most compassionate professionals and now we want to give back to help Tackle Kids Cancer (TKC). TKC is helping those who need it most by advancing research and providing children access to the highest level of care. We invite you to join us in our effort, where every dollar raised benefits the essential clinical care, unique support services and ground-breaking research needed to find a cure.
From the bottom of our hearts we thank you for your support.

As an added benefit, by contributing now Eli Manning, quarterback of the New York Giants, has agreed to match contributions 1 to 1. All money raised through this challenge will benefit the Children’s Cancer Institute at Hackensack University Medical Center and will help their littlest patients become kids again!
Pediatric cancer is the #1 cause of death by disease among children in the US and only 4% of cancer research dollars are allocated to pediatric cancer. These facts are devastating, but the doctors at the Children’s Cancer Institute are working tirelessly to find a cure. Please support us and help end childhood cancer!
Thank you for supporting our team and we encourage you to take Eli’s Challenge as well! Registration is quick and easy…click the Join A Team button and complete the registration process. Together we can make a bigger impact in this fight against pediatric cancer.
Remember…together WE CAN Tackle Kids Cancer!
