Sofia's Campaign for Usher Syndrome Society Inc

Our close family friend, Brendan Gellman was born with a disease that has weakened his eyesight and hearing. Every day is a battle for him, but he is still one of the strongest people I’ve ever met. Usher’s Syndrome affects over 400,000 people all across the world. I’ve known BG my whole life, and I want to help find a cure for Usher syndrome. In a couple of weeks, I’ll be playing at the Monument City Classic tournament in Richmond, Virginia, and I’ll be dedicating the whole weekend to him. My jersey number is number twenty-four, and I’d be very thankful if you would sponsor me with a donation of $24, which will be sent to the Usher Syndrome Society. Thank you in advance for your donations to this cause that means so much to me.
