As fundraising picks up steam for the 11 Day Power Play a South Buffalo family has a very personal reason to be involved.
When Mike Chase strapped on the pads for his first 11 day Power Play in 2018, he was doing so for his fellow firefighter and close friend, P.J. Stanton, who was battling brain cancer at the time.
Little did he know, but just months later his drive to make a difference would hit even closer to home.
On December 20, 2018 Mike and his wife Colleen got the news that their 5-year-old boy, Owen had his own battle ahead.
