Date:7/21/2013

Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) July 21, 2013

Arena Football League (AFL) kicker Juan Bongarra of the Tampa Bay Storm, has joined Kicking For The Dream’s effort to fight ovarian cancer according to NFL Kicker, and Kicking For The Dream founder, Billy Cundiff.

“I've known Juan since his days at Scottsdale Community College,” says Cundiff. “He has worked hard to get to the Arena League and play professionally. I'm excited that Juan has joined our fight against ovarian cancer."

Bongarra says it’s a privilege to be working with Cundiff, and says he wants to add his voice to those speaking up about this ‘silent’ killer.

“It’s a privilege to be part of Kicking For The Dream and extend my help for those in need,” says Bongarra. “Fighting ovarian cancer is a great cause, and it’s time to “un-silence” this silent killer.”

Bongarra spent 2011, his rookie season, in the Arena Football League (AFL) with the Tulsa Talons. That year he converted on 11-of-20 field goals and 97-of-115 extra points, and ranked third in the AFL in field goal conversion (55.0) and second in made field goals.

In 2013, he returned for his second season with the Tampa Bay Storm where he set a new franchise marks for extra points attempted (135) and converted (116).

Bongarra initially kicked at Scottsdale Community College, where earned several NJCAA honors, before finishing his collegiate career at Albany State where he earned all-conference honors his senior season.

About Kicking For The Dream:

Billy Cundiff, who has been an NFL kicker for over 10 years for teams such as the Cowboys, Saints, Browns, Ravens and Redskins, launched Kicking For The Dream in May of 2013, as an effort to support Colleen’s Dream Foundation, a foundation which raises money to support research for the early detection of, and improved treatment for, ovarian cancer.

About Colleen's Dream Foundation:

Colleen’s Dream Foundation started in 2012 and supports research for early detection and improved treatment for ovarian cancer.

The story of Colleen’s Dream started in 2007 when Billy Cundiff’s mother-in-law, Colleen Drury, was diagnosed with late-stage ovarian cancer. It was only then that Colleen and her family realized a new world that was filled with invasive surgery, harsh chemotherapy, and lots of uncertainty.

Ovarian cancer is often referred to as “the silent killer” because many women do not discover their disease until it is in the late stages, which leads to many women succumbing to the disease within a short period of time. Unlike cervical or breast cancer, ovarian cancer does not have a standardized early detection procedure. Whenit comes to women’s health, ovarian cancer proves to be one of the deadliest diseases.

Colleen’s Dream Foundation believes it is important to raise money for ovarian cancer research that will lead to reliable early detection testing and improved treatment for ovarian cancer. Because so little is known about ovarian cancer in proportion to other women’s health issues, we have an incredible opportunity for research and education.

Colleen’s Dream is working with some of the top research hospitals and universities that are researching ovarian cancer. By offering seed funding to young investigators, the Foundation funds cutting-edge research by some of the brightest, young minds in the world.

Colleen’s Dream Foundation is a qualified 501 (c)(3) tax exempt non-profit organization based in Phoenix, Arizona.
