Michael Weiner's nephew raises $1,800 for cancer with homemade hockey stickers
Michael Weiner, the former MLBPA Executive Director, passed away from brain cancer late last year. The 51-year-old fought hard against the disease, working and inspiring others throughout his 15-month battle. And now, his nephew George is keeping that fight alive.
The 13-year-old hockey player has raised more than $1,800 selling homemade, $1 helmet stickers at youth tournaments around the country. According to the Wayne Patch, the New Jersey resident has spread awareness as far as Chicago.
George is donating the $1,800 and $1,000 worth of his Bar Mitzvah money to the non-profit Voices Against Brain Cancer.
