    Kyle Macintosh is a 23 year old, University of Colorado track and field star from Littleton, Colorado. More importantly however Kyle is our son, Kyle is our brother, Kyle is our nephew. He is our best friend, our teammate. Kyle is our hero. Just over one year ago Kyle was diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma Cancer, and no one has been stronger and more positive throughout his battle with this horrible disease than he has been. For the past year Kyle has continually lifted all those around him through his perserverance and incredible courage. Recently Kyle endured a bit of a setback when on Christmas night he suffered a serious brain aneurysm. Kyle however knows no quit, a trait so obviously learned from his amazing family. Your thoughts and prayers during this time are incredibly appreciated however those who have been through something like this know that there is often a financial burden that comes along with continuously fighting such a brutal illness. Kyle's parents have not asked for anyone's help along the way as they share a similar resolve as their son, they in fact are not even currently aware in any way of this cause to raise money. However I, and the rest of Kyle's many friends, would like to help the family by relieving any financial burden brought on by this battle by asking that you please donate any money you may have available to the family to put towards that effort. K-Mac and his family have touched so many lives, this is the very least we could all do to support their cause. Come be a part of something bigger than yourself. #KMacStrength #FUcancer

    That's the cancer my son was diagnosed with. It is beatable. There is a current player for the Giants who is in remission, and playing well.

    Thanks 21. It definitely sucks. I feel for this family. It's like winning the reverse lottery, something like only 35 people diagnosed each year.
