2012 mAss Kickers Foundation Year In Review
2012 was a great year for mAss Kickers Foundation!
We started off 2012 at the E! Studios
in Hollywood and saw a live taping of “The Soup
”. E! personality, Ken Baker
was kind enough to give us a VIP tour of the E! Studios.
In February, MKF Founder, Eric Galvez spoke at The Rehab Institute of Chicago
about his experiences as a young physical therapist turned neuro rehab patient and offered unique advice in treating brain tumor patients. Later in the month, MKF was at the C4YW conference
in New Orleans represented by Heather Swift, Gayle Wismar, and Cindy Sanchez. Also in February, Lyman Ng, and Brent Glova guest bartended at Local Habit with all tips going to mAss Kickers Foundation to sponsor the Kickball tournament!.
In September, Eric traveled to Texas again to speak at University of Texas – Southwestern
about his experiences as a young PT turned neuro rehab patient. MKF also connected with Community Boost Consulting
at the Stay Classy Collaborative in San Diego to help promote International TUMORS SUCK Day 2012.
In October MKF was represented at Fil-Am Fest
in San Diego. Later in the month, we teamed with Hawktober and Floyd’s 99 Barbershop to promote brain tumor awareness and show support for breast cancer patients. On October 25, we hosted the International Tumors Suck Day Celebration of Life.
This was an event for survivors to formally say thanks with toasts to our families, friends, and fellow survivors
who stuck with us through the difficult times. They transformed us into “thrivers”.
