In late 2019, one of our own sharks was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer at age 49. Scott had a long journey ahead of him while receiving treatment. The Foundation works to take care of our own; in addition to providing in person and virtual support, 1DOS hosted the Cappy Katz T-shirt fundraiser. Between shirt sales and donations, we were able to send Scott a check for an impressive $3,053.18 to cover treatment and co-pays.
As an update, Scott is currently awaiting the next round of tests; his treatments have significantly reduced his cancer. He will keep fighting and we will be there to support him every step.
