Please help Team Junqueira raise money for Micthell Mongomery's fight against cancer!
My name is Neale Hoerle and I've been a Jiu Jitsu athlete for over 20 years. In that time Jiu Jitsu has taught me humility, respect and honor and I believe it has changed my life for the better.
I am currently ranked Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and although I haven't competed in two years I feel compelled to step back on the mats this April at the IBJJF New York Open. My main goal and inspiration is a young man named Mitchell Montgomery. Mitchell who is only 4 years old, was diagnosed on September 28th with a Wilms Tumor and is currently in treatment for Stage III Kidney Cancer. Wilms tumor is a relatively rare cancer with about 500 cases diagnosed each year in the U.S. Mitchell went through 6 weeks of chemotherapy to reduce the tumor so surgeons could remove the cancerous kidney. After several months of treatment, the tumor shrunk just enough for the kidney to be removed.
Following his kidney removal, Mitchell now has 4 months of radiation and chemotherapy. The treatment includes cycles of 5 inpatient chemotherapy days and 2 weeks of outpatient chemotherapy.
Mitchell is a sweet, fun, loving, super hero, ready to fight and defeat this challenge. The Montgomery’s, a family of five, are facing mounting medical bills and need your support to win this fight.
My fight is for Mitchell. In the 20+ years I have been a part of the BJJ community I have seen us pull together to help one another and I can find no stronger motivation in my heart than to fight for Mitchell... He is fighting a much tougher fight than me and I would love to hang my Gold medal around his neck for Championing cancer with strength and honor.
I pledge to donate 100% of the monies I can raise through this campaign to Mitchell and his family and I am asking for your help! Every dollar counts... please find it in your heart to support the Montgomery family through my efforts.
