Today’s game is a special one for a special member of BBN. Matt Cheek is a 37 year old father of two (Hayley & Colton), a devoted husband (to Ashley), a brother, a son, an employee of CSX, and a community volunteer. In August of 2011, Matt was diagnosed with an Oligodendroglioma brain tumor. Since then he has had three brain surgeries, multiple rounds of radiation, and chemotherapy. He continues his fight along the side of his family and friends and due to his love of Kentucky sports, along the side of BBN. Recently after Matt’s last round of radiation, he came home to a surprise from Coach Cal in the form of a letter and signed photos from the team and himself. Today Matt is attending the Winthrop game with his brother, father, and friend.
