In 2012, Coach Fischer was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma on September 21st. Four years later, he continues to fight against this bone and blood cancer on a daily basis and has NEVER once missed out on standing along the sidelines with his team, for a Friday night football game. Working his weekly/monthly treatments and doctor visits around the time of practice, camps, and game days has become a way of life for him and he refuses to live it any other way.
On Friday, September 30th, 2016, at 7:00pm, the Louisa County Lions will host their first ever “ Cancer Out” football game.
Most schools follow the trend of highlighting one cancer for a particular game or month, but Louisa has a different idea. Friday Night will be a night of many colors in The Jungle. Coach Fischer wants the community to visually represent a cancer that has impacted your life, by wearing the color of that cancer ribbon to the football game. DKMS will also have a table to get swabbed to potentially save a life!
