FUTURE STARS

This young man is the perfect team player. He plays for the S3 Express. This team has played all over the country and Sam has played a big role in the success. The S3 Express has been ranked as one of the top teams in the state of Texas. He is an athlete who speaks through his actions, not his mouth. Sam works hard at the game of baseball and will definitely reach his full potential. He is a student of the game and will beat you in many different ways. There is not too many catchers at that level that can block and call a game like Sam Canales can. His goal is to one day play baseball at a Division I Ivy League School. His father is a former Dartmouth football player, his cousin is currently playing football at Bowden University. Whichever Ivy League gets him will not only get a great athlete, but a great student role model as well. At the end of the day, this young man will conquer all his dreams and goals. Remember his name, Sam Canales.

TX-CANALES-TROPY-PROFILE
TX SAM CANALES READYORNOT FOUNDATION Sam has partnered with Jackie Black & the Ready or Not Foundation for Home Runs that Help
The Ready or Not Foundation was inspired by Jacqueline (a/k/a “Jackie” ), my daughter. In January of 2006, Jackie (at age 6) was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Soon thereafter, the doctors had discovered it was a high grade (grade 3) anaplastic astrocytoma, and the treatments included surgeries, radiation therapy, and extended chemotherapy. Today, Jackie is in remission after living with the most lethal of diseases for children. From day one, our goal was for Jackie to be a survivor. Now, our goal is to not only survive, but to also help others.The symbol for the Ready or Not Foundation is a tree with a childs hands wrapped around it. This logo represents the day that Jackie’s life changed (the day that so many of our lives were changed). On this day, Jackie was playing hide-and-seek tag at her school’s playground when she bumped her head on an oak tree. The ensuing trip to the pediatrician and a quick CAT scan soon revealed that a large tumor was hiding in the back of Jackie’s brain. The tree saved Jackie’s life (as there would have been no other way for this early diagnosis to occur since Jackie was completely asymptomatic).At the time of the diagnosis, Jackie was receiving her care through the Driscoll Children’s Hospital in Corpus Christi, Texas. Thereafter, Jackie’s care was placed in the capable hands of so many trained physicians and health care providers at the Texas Children’s Hospital (TCH) and Texas Children’ Cancer Center (TCCC) in Houston, Texas. At TCH/TCCC, Jackie underwent two (2) major brain surgeries in an effort to remove as much of the cancer as possible. Radiation therapy was then appropriate, and Jackie submitted to six (6) weeks of proton radiation therapy at the Proton Treatment Center at Loma Linda University Medical Center in Loma Linda, California. Jackie has since completed a year of chemotherapy (administered via TCCC and Driscoll Children’s Hospital).By the time I had walked my daughter into the radiation chamber for the thirty-third (33rd) time, I was READY to do something about brain cancer in children. Thus, the Ready or Not Foundation was formed. There are dedicated medical researchers who are ready to make a difference, and this Foundation has been set up to help these researches have the tools to make the scientific advances that are so desperately needed. In the past thirty (30) years, brain cancer has remained an enigma as research efforts have been poorly funded. To unlock its mystery, substantial funds must be dedicated to better treatments and a cure for pediatric brain cancer. I will not be satisfied until such time that the odds favor the child over the cancer.Nobody is ready for cancer to come into their family. No parent can be ready to hear the terrible statistics that accompany high grade pediatric brain cancer. Whether you are ready or not, one out of every three hundred thirty (330) parents will find themselves facing a cancer battle with their own child.With your help today, one hundred percent (100%) of every dollar donated to the Ready or Not Foundation will be contributed directly to pediatric brain cancer research. Today, we are currently matched by The Lester and Susan Smith Foundation ( Houston, Texas ) so that every dollar raised turns into two dollars, With all that I am, I thank you for your support. Statistics reveal that high grade tumors have a high incidence of recurring. We need to get to work, and now! We celebrate today, and we will (our families, friends, volunteers, and others) be READY for what tomorrow might bring.
