COT: YHC spoke about the death of Andy Hoffman who was the 42-year old father of Jack Hoffman and the founder of the Team Jack Foundation that has raised over $8M for brain cancer research in the past decade. With the average age of F3 PAX right around 42, that number really stuck out to me and to any of us who have seen our own children suffer an injury, serious illness, or major surgery. Andy let his actions speak for his dedication to his son and fighting for cancer awareness and research and then back in July 2020, he himself became aware that he had a rare form of terminal brain cancer, the doctors gave him less than a year to live. Jack is now 15 and no longer than little 7-year old from the spring football game back in 2007 that we saw score that 69-yard touchdown. What a great example of a HIM who fought hard for his son and gladly took his place! Prayers to the Hoffman family and everyone who he was able to influence with his story of love and hope for his son Jack.
Ended in prayer.
