While the world has stopped, schools have closed their doors for the rest of the year and all but essential businesses have shut down, cancer doesn’t care. Cancer doesn’t care about social distancing. It won’t temporarily pause and wait until this crisis is over. It’s a deadly disease that has no regard for anyone’s schedule.
That message became crystal clear when I caught up with Amy Lesakowski, who along with her husband Mike, co-founded the 11 Day Power Play back in 2017. Since then, the annual event–a continuous, 24-hour, 11-day-long game has raised more than $4.1 million for cancer research in Western New York.
