NFL Kicker Nick Novak Joins Kicking For The Dream’s Effort to Fight Ovarian Cancer
Date:8/5/2013

Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) August 05, 2013

NFL kicker Nick Novak of the San Diego Chargers, has joined Kicking For The Dream’s effort to fight ovarian cancer, according to NFL Kicker, and Kicking For The Dream founder, Billy Cundiff.

"Nick is a tremendous kicker who has always given back," says Cundiff. "His personal connection to ovarian cancer has shown him firsthand how awful this disease can be. I can only say we very excited to have Nick join our effort to fight ovarian cancer. Without question, he sets the type of example young kickers will want to follow."

Novak says he is glad to support Billy Cundiff’s efforts with Kicking For The Dream as he has seen how cancer impacts individuals and families.

"This is what it’s all about, I tip my hat to Cundiff and all the others involved," says Novak. "We have all been affected by cancer in some way or another. For me it was Annie Arth, she passed in 2005 after battling ovarian and breast cancer her entire adult life. A very good family friend and neighbor, I admired her so much because of her positive attitude and strength through it all."

Losing a friend to cancer impacted Novak deeply.

"I donate every chance I get because of Annie, and all the children I've met over the years at Rady's Children's Hospital in San Diego," says Novak. "The reality is no one is safe, you just never know when cancer will knock on your door. This is why we must all do our part to raise money and awareness any chance we get."

"In the past, I have donated to the American Cancer Society for every kick I make during a game," says Novak. "I’d usually donate $100-150 a kick, and both the team, and my agent Chad Wiestling, would match the total amount."
