Alabama Football Fans Fight Colorectal Cancerposted on 10/04/2012 by Michael Powell
Jami Davis is tougher than any football player on Alabama’s Crimson Tide football team. Since her diagnosis with colorectal cancer this past May, Jami’s endured radiation and chemo pills, chemo infusions, multiple surgeries, and other various treatments. Jami’s also a single mother of two very special children: her beautiful nine-year-old daughter, Mandy, and her unique son, Bama Dog.
Bama Dog, or, “The Hound in Houndstooth,” is an unofficial mascot for Alabama’s Crimson Tide. On game days, one is likely to find him drooling on tailgaters while posing for photos in his distinguished houndstooth fedora. In addition to cheering alongside Alabama’s hardcore fans, Bama Dog’s lately become an adoring cheerleader for his resilient mom.
Bama Dog launched a GiveForward page to help with the insurance deductibles, co-pays, and out-of-pocket expenses his family is facing. To date, the page has raised almost $4,000! Jami’s cancer battle is unfortunately diminishing the family’s supplies of both literal and figurative bacon. Bama Dog calls on Bama Nation to aid in Jami’s imminent victory.
Although Jami’s opponent is overbearing, her hope and humor are tackling cancer. She writes, “When life gets tough, you just have to laugh in its face and keep putting one foot in front of the other. I am blessed by wonderful friends who get me through every day!” Now that is an invincible game plan!
