Big John Tailgate! October 15 vs Ohio State!! For the last 15 years, the Big John has been able to contribute thousands of dollars to Waukesha Memorial Hospital & local families dealing w cancer. The support from family & friends has been amazing! Thank you! In 2016, we are switching our focus to a rare kidney disease called FSGS, Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis. Our daughter, Riley, was diagnosed with FSGS last December. With the help of Riley's doctors, she is stable & doing very well. However, moving forward there are many unknowns. Riley has been asked to be a part of a research study involving 600 kids from the US, Italy, & Canada that have this rare disease. At this point, there is money to study these kids for 4 years but they are hoping to follow these kids throughout adulthood to help find the causes & cures for FSGS. Please like the "Big John Tailgate" for future updates. Thanks for all of your support! Hope to see you at the event! Go Badgers!!
