HOWARD YOUNG 15-YEAR SURVIVOR WILL THROW THE CEREMONIAL FIRST PITCH

Throwing a ceremonial first pitch at a major league baseball game has become a sought-after tradition usually only reserved for celebrities. Well, Howard is our VIP Celebrity. He has been such an inspiration to other pancreatic cancer patients. “What a privilege to be given this honor” said Howard. “It means so much to inspire others to never give-up hope. To find the will and courage to face the battle that lies ahead. Being blessed with extended life to experience many more treasured moments is so special not only for patients but their loved-ones as well. My thanks to Karl Glassman and Leggett & Platt for sponsoring this thrill of a lifetime and my special appreciation to Roger and the Seena Magowitz Foundation for all it does to support pancreatic cancer research.”
