Date:7/28/2013

Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) July 28, 2013

Arena Football League (AFL) kicker Kenny Spencer of the New Orleans VooDoo, 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 Kenny Spencer since he was in high school," says Cundiff. "Kenny is a great kicker, always gives back to his community and is a stand up guy. We are excited to have him on board as we know he will be an inspiration to others."

Spencer says he is thrilled that Cundiff asked him to join the Kicking For The Dream project.

“When Billy called and asked me to be a apart of Kicking For A Dream, it was a no-brainer,” says Spencer. "I feel honored and couldn't be more happy to help fight for such a great cause. Ovarian cancer is a serious disease and can't be taken lightly.”

Spencer was assigned to the AFL’s New Orleans VooDoo on June 27, 2013 after spending time with the Spokane Shock (AFL).

In 2012, Spencer set a League record with 138 converted extra points on the season (94.5 conversion percentage) as a rookie with the Spokane Shock.

In field goal situations, Spencer converted 4 of 7 attempts with all three misses coming on field goals over 50 yards. For his outstanding performance in the 2012 season, Spencer received all-league honors and was named the AFL Kicker of the Year.

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. When it 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.
