Date:9/12/2013

Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) September 12, 2013

NFL long snapper Morgan Cox of the Baltimore Ravens has joined Kicking For The Dream’s effort to fight ovarian cancer, according to NFL Kicker and Kicking For The Dream founder, Billy Cundiff.

"We are excited that Morgan has joined Kicking For The Dream,” says Cundiff. “His personal connection to Colleen makes his participation especially meaningful to us. Morgan is a great long snapper as well as a great role model for young kicking specialists."

Cox, a former Raven’s teammate of Cundiff, says he is happy to help support Kicking For The Dream.

“Billy has taught me a lot about appreciating the position I am in being in the NFL and giving back to people who need help,” says Cox. “I believe in his mission and I want to support him in his efforts to bring awareness and research to ovarian cancer. Everyone's life has been impacted in some form by cancer. I believe we all must continually play a part in beating it and supporting the families that are going through it.”

About Morgan Cox:

Cox, who is from Memphis, TN, started his career in snapping in the fifth grade. His journey to the NFL continued through high school at Evangelical Christian (Cox says he is “a faithful follower of Christ”) where he started as a long snapper when he was a junior and senior. From there, Cox attended the University of Tennessee where he earned a scholarship after starting as a long snapper in his third year. Cox received his undergraduate degree in Finance and Information Management and his graduate degree in Sports Management.

Cox was signed by the Baltimore Ravens as an undrafted free agent following the 2010 NFL Draft on May 6, 2010. He earned the starting long snapper job on August 14, 2010. Cox was part of the 2012 Baltimore Ravens Super Bowl XLVII victory on February 3, 2013.

About Kicking For The Dream:

Billy Cundiff, who is the kicker for the Cleveland Browns, and has been an NFL kicker for over 10 years for teams such as the Cowboys, Saints, 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 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.
