Team Alltackle is dedicating this year's Fish For a Cure to my Father, Bill Fraser, also known as Pops around town in Annapolis. Pops was one of those characters that always seemed to be around during any fun event. Pops always had a joke and a smile for anyone he met and he treated everybody the same, no matter who they were, color, religion, status, etc. He was just a decent person.
Pops showed up at last year's Fish For a Cure Shore Party and had a great time. Who would of known that he would be gone soon thereafter on New Year's Eve. He never saw 2020.
Pops was in a battle he could not win against Leukemia and Lymphoma. He spent time in and out of the Cancer Center at AAMC where he received excellent care from all the great doctors and nurses there.
Unfortunately, he was never in a condition which would allow him to be enrolled in the Survivorship Programs at AAMC.
Help my crew and me in our commitment to supporting cancer care in our community by making a charitable contribution to our boat and help us to spread the word about our participation in this great cause.
Last year, more than 2,000 patients experienced above and beyond cancer care at AAMC’s Geaton and JoAnn DeCesaris Cancer Institute. With your partnership and support of the 2020 Fish For A Cure Tournament and Paul C. Dettor Captain’s Challenge, AAMC will be able to continue to provide these programs and services to our friends, loved ones, and neighbors in the community as they undergo cancer treatment and care.
