An author (“The Sports Guy: Scorecard Scribblings From An Ordinary Journalist”), actor, artist and producer, Brent is grateful for the unwavering support of his loving family, including daughter Nicole, Diane, his parents and siblings. He couldn’t have launched this “campaign” without the help of Nikki, Mary, Brent, Sheri, and Ben. Brent’s statement: “I have been blessed with this opportunity to provide one more voice to the chorus of those who have made such progress against catastrophic illnesses through the Leukemia-Lymphoma Society. We are all here not only to raise awareness for a far-reaching organization whose efforts have helped millions in their battles – but also to see to it that their brave work gains the momentum needed to face, fight and conquer these forms of blood disease. I am humbled to be part of this endeavor.”
