“She’s the strongest person I know,” said Krajewski, of his mom Wanda. “I don’t know where I’d be without her. Family is everything to us, and her courage and strength regularly motivate us to push through life’s everyday challenges,” shared the 314 lb. offensive lineman who escorted his mother out to the field for the coin toss prior to the game.
Diagnosed with breast cancer in August 2017, Wanda Krajewski is thankful for early detection. “My family and friends were my rock during the process. Without them, my story would not have been written so beautifully. Mammograms save lives. I understand life is busy, but it’s super important to get regular screenings. I didn’t have any lumps or bumps, yet my routine check found cancer,” she said.
Seahawk fans enjoyed the chance to purchase tickets for a 50/50 raffle with proceeds benefiting the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event to be held Saturday, October 26th.
Led by an outstanding defensive performance, the Keiser football team rolled past the Faulkner Eagles 35-3 in the 2019 Mid-South Conference Sun Division opener. The Seahawks look to remain unbeaten as they will travel to Lake Wales, Florida for an MSC Sun Division matchup against the Royals of Warner University on Saturday, October 12th. Kickoff is set for 1:30 p.m.
