This basketball game isn’t like any other basketball game as the participants playing will be  the Amputee Basketball Invigorated (ABI) and LCPD.  ABI is a Christian basketball team made up of Mostly cancer survivors who travel the country playing charity games to raise funds for sick children.  100% of all funds raised go to the sick child. There will also be vendors, food trucks, a jumping balloon, a mechanical bull, a horse and wagon for rides, a fun filled family day! This will all go to help Manny and his family with medical bills not covered by insurance. Manny is a brave 8 yr old who was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma last November.  He has undergone 7 months of chemo so far and has about 5 to 6 more weeks to go.  He has also undergone limb salvage surgery through the grafting of a cadaver bone.  Manny is now learning to walk again while remaining non-weight bearing to his left leg.  There is still a ways to go to recover from all these chemo treatments and surgery and the family is in need! Make it out to have some fun for a very good cause.
