MIF's president, Catherine Poole, author, survivor of melanoma will collaborate with Pro Baseball Hall of Famer Mike Schmidt Shares His “Game
Plan” for Battling Cancer

Mike Schmidt with
, a member of the Baseball Hall of Fame,
is considered to be the greatest third
baseman of all time. As a professional athlete, he always felt invincible,
but in 2013 a melanoma
diagnosis threw
him a curveball that
he wasn’t prepared for.
On his way
out of town
, Schmidt noticed a lesion on his hand that he
thought he should get
checked
out. After a dermatologist gave him a full examination and biopsied a
mole on his back,
Schmidt was
diagnosed
with stage III melanoma.

Schmidt. “One way I can give back is to help
others find the support, i
nformation and tools they need to make it through this journey. I was
fortunate that my game plan came together with the support of my family and team of doctors,
but I know others may need help taking action.”
Your Cancer Game Plan
launched in January 2017 in partnership with Pro Football Hall of
Famer Jim Kelly and leading advocacy groups in the head and neck community. Now, the
program is expanding to reach those affected by melanoma. This effort is a collaboration

Thank you for sharing Catherine!

I was a very huge Jim Kelly fan growing up (last time I saw him was in Buffalo at the Bills game when they retired his number I believe during halftime vs Seahawks game in 2003) and everyone knows Mike Schmidt. They're not only heros on the field, but I know coming out will help educate so many more people.

Enjoy their company! Maybe get a picture of you and them for the website to help inspire us and raise awareness.

I'm not much of a sports fan but look forward to doing this project. I do hope it will bring awareness too. Thanks for your ideas! We are hoping that Mike will also come to our event April 22nd, not for sure yet, but a great way to celebrate our 15th year!
