'Fight for Frank' Benefit at Local Restaurant
Fundraiser to help former MHS and NFL football player battling brain cancer at the Blue Moon Jan. 16 and 17
Locals will have the opportunity to help Frank Chamberlin in his fight against cancer at an event at Blue Moon restaurant in Wyckoff later this month. The former football player, who grew up in Mahwah, recently returned from Germany where he is undergoing treatment.
'Fight for Frank' member Kristen Marino contacted Blue Moon recently about hosting the fundraiser.
On Jan. 16 and 17, 20 percent of customers' bills will be donated to "Fight for Frank" if they bring in the flier attached to this story, Marino said Friday.
Chamberlin, a Wyckoff resident and former NFL player, suffered a seizure last year when he was 24 and collapsed at work.
He was diagnosed with anaplastic astrocytoma (grade 3 glioma), a severe form of brain cancer. Chamberlin underwent surgery that partially removed the tumor, but was left with ongoing seizures and significant speech impairment.
'Fight for Frank' was founded in late last year in an attempt raise $200,000 toward Chamberlin's medical bills.
