I wrote a little letter to Ken Korach today. Went like this:
Hi Ken, Hope you are recovering well. Nice what the boys did to the Angels, huh? Well the reason I am writing is because I am involved in Relay for Life – The Fight Against Cancer, and wanted to send you a link to my page in case you might like to donate.
As you might recall from my book, my oldest sister is a breast cancer survivor, and has attended every Breast Cancer Awareness Day the A's have held.
I appreciate your time, get well soon, and Go A’s. Link
Not even an hour later, a recovering Korach replied:
Don: I'm doing much better, thank you. Knee replacement isn't easy and I don't recommend 2 surgeries on the same knee in 10 weeks!! But, I am really coming along and baring something unforeseen, I'll be back to work on 5/8....which, as David Feldman reminded me the other will be the 44th anniversary of Catfish's perfecto. Then, Braden the next day.
I am happy to donate and the world needs more people like you who are trying to make a difference.
Thanks again, Don, for the email.
Mere minutes later, another email, this time from Relay for Life, confirming a donation from Ken Korach.
I would say the world needs more people like HIM.
