Reel’n in Cancer
Since many of you don’t follow our MTFA-Springfield Facebook page, you have missed an important post. So, I’ll show it to you below.
Tyler Strothkamp and his family have been members of the Springfield Chapter for years. Mark, his father, usually brings his sons to our meetings. They stopped coming late last winter. I noticed their absence but didn’t know the reason. A few months ago, I found out why. Read the article below and you will know that reason, too. Kudos to Tyler. Please consider supporting his effort. Bob Randall, Secretary
Hi my name is Tyler Strothkamp (on the far right) Reel’n in Cancer. It all started as a project in my english 2 class at Ozark High School in Ozark Missouri. My goal is to start a foundation to give cancer patients free fishing gear according to the fishing style that they like to fish. Fly fishing, bass fishing and pan fishing (crappie, bluegill). But to make my plan work I need you to support me financially to purchase the line, lures, rods, reels, hooks… the whole set up to benefit cancer patients. My dad (middle right) was diagnosed with cancer early february 2016 fishing really helped him get his mind off things when he was able to. I personally think his recovery is in part due to the outdoors and fishing. So join me in this quest to Reel in Cancer.
Help spread the word!
