So, i am from Fairport, New York and graduated last year from Fairport High School. Last year a kid named Blake Cognata got diagnosed with a rare type of cancer. As of today it became public news in the town that the cancer had spread to every bone and he didnt have long. Myself and hundreds of other current students and Alumni tweeted #APcallblake after only an hour or so a picture came along of Blake talking on the phone with Adrian Peterson. The hashtag soon turned into #APCALLEDBLAKE
Love these types of stories. It's great to see a public figure to take some time and just do the right thing when it will lift someone spirits. Hope Blake can pull through, my thoughts are with him and his family.
Similar thing happened in my town, CP3 went to a highschool named West forsyth, this kid got cancer in november there this year, rare form, and it recessed. Turns out it was coming back and doctors said he only had a couple weeks to live, the kids at west forsyth started a hashtag called #PrayForRyan and Cp3 tweeted at him like 4 times. He was supposed to take a trip to key west the day after he died too. Shit's fucked RIP
Adrian's latest facebook post, proud to say the guy's playing for my home team, such a great guy and absolutely amazing player
"My thoughts and prayers go out to the Cognata Family! Rest in peace Blake Cognata. Love you brother."
