Last month I was proud to participate in the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Light the Night walking event in honor of my cousin, Zach. Zach has been battling Lymphoma since he received his diagnosis, shortly after his high school graduation this past spring.
The event had a great turn out – including a few famous faces. David Keith walked in support of a friend.
Zach, far too young to remember An Officer and a Gentleman, misunderstood who he was meeting and asked Mr. Keith to say “Touchdown Titans.”
“Um, yeah, that’s not me…” Apparently Zach and his buddy thought they were meeting Tennessee Titans announcer Mike Keith.
Local UT celebrities were also in attendance – including Men’s basketball coach Cuonzo Martin (pictured with Zach above) and football announcer Bob Kesling. Both men are lymphoma survivors.
