My entire life has revolved around family, and as I have gotten older that family has been blessed with many children. I am the father of four, and am known as Uncle James to 15 nieces and eight nephews and Coach James to a host of others. Kids are my life, and I would not trade that life for anything in this world. I am extremely grateful to say that my children and all those nieces and nephews have been healthy to this point, but I could not imagine the toll it would take if that were not the case. I cannot think of a better way to express that gratitude than to lend a helping hand to those families that have been affected by childhood cancer. Knowing that there are such great organizations like Arms Wide Open dedicated to helping children and their families day in and day out is inspiration enough. But unfortunately, like most of us out there, knowing families that have battled cancer and fought alongside their children is why I am getting involved with Arms Wide Open and participating in this year's Shave For A Cure.
