Syracuse attack Owen Seebold raised nearly $20,000 for MS research

first_img Published on April 3, 2019 at 11:15 pm Contact Michael: [email protected] | @MikeJMcCleary Facebook Twitter Google+ Robert Seebold didn’t want to make a big deal of it all —  he certainly didn’t want people to feel bad for him. So when he called his children downstairs and sat them on the couch, he just stated the facts.“I’m just going to be a little different,” Robert said. He ensured he’d be fine, that the family would get through this. But, just a sophomore in high school, Owen Seebold was confused. His father’s multiple sclerosis diagnosis immediately led him to expect the worst. Seebold ran up to his computer for answers: What happens to him? How will it affect him? Will my father die?“At first it wasn’t more of a ‘How can I help?’ It was more of a ‘How’s he feeling?’” Seebold said. “I think I wanted to help immediately, but I don’t think I realized how much I could help — as I do now.”Four years later, Seebold scrolled through a Facebook notification asking if he wanted to start a fundraiser for his birthday. In honor of his dad, a former member of the 1988 Syracuse national championship team, Seebold started a campaign to raise money for multiple sclerosis research. The original goal was set at $500, according to Seebold’s Facebook page, but the donations closed with $9,023 raised before Robert’s former teammate Brett Jefferson added $10,000 of his own.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAs the campaign grew in publicity, Syracuse men’s lacrosse featured Seebold at halftime of SU’s Feb. 24 matchup with Army. Though Seebold has yet to record a point in seven appearances this season, the success of the fundraiser is representative of the platform given to student-athletes around the country, increasing the importance of individual activism.“I’m not a star player or anything like that,” Seebold said. “I wasn’t really expecting for it to be that popular.”Multiple sclerosis is an autoimmune disease that creates lesions on a person’s brain and spine. The disease strips the nervous system of its outer-lining and limits the brain’s ability to move certain parts of the body. MS manifests differently in everyone it affects, and there are three forms of the disease: relax-and-remitting (recurring but nonconstant symptoms), secondary-progressive (a form that gradually develops worsening symptoms) and primary-progressive (a constant condition that gradually worsens from contraction).The symptoms come in various ways: some lose the ability to walk, others temporarily lose function of their arms and more wake up with no vision in one eye, uncertain they will gain it back. When EJ Levy started MS Hope for a Cure following her diagnosis in 2002, there were three known medications to limit MS symptoms. She allocated a lot of her early funds from the campaign to stem cell research, and as of Wednesday, there are 15 drugs on the market — the first FDA-approved drug to treat PPMS, OCREVUS, was passed on March 28. But the cause’s reach has suffered because the disease is generally nonfatal in healthy adults. For Robert, his secondary-progressive state limited his daily activity and forced him to retire early.“I don’t get around real well,” Robert said.Anna Henderson | Digital Design EditorSeebold’s donation is just one of many campaigns that MS Hope for a Cure takes on as it prepares for its fourth day-long event, MS Hope Day on April 7. After his birthday campaign, Seebold was inspired. One day, he wants to create his own nonprofit.Ever since he was a kid, Seebold had been connected to various causes. He dedicated some high school games to his aunt, Ellen, who had breast cancer, and helped raise money for a former high school classmate who died of cancer.When he was in middle school, his parents received a check in the mail from Family Legacy Missions International, an organization in which donors can fund the welfare of a child in Africa. Seebold signed up without telling his parents, and used his allowance money for his first donation.Now at Syracuse, Owen calls home three or four times a week. He doesn’t worry how his father is dealing with his condition anymore — he just calls to talk. A few days before the Orange’s matchup with Army, Seebold sent a text to his parents.“Hey, I just started a fundraiser for MS for my birthday,” Seebold texted. “ACC Network just interviewed me for it. Watch it at halftime.”From their home in Texas, Robert and his wife, Brandie, sat on the couch in their living room and flipped on their Apple TV. Owen didn’t score or assist in the game, and he hardly appeared in Syracuse’s 10-8 win. But he graced the screen at halftime. At home, Robert’s eyes swelled.“I consider myself pretty lucky,” Robert said, “to have a kid with that kind of heart.” Commentslast_img read more

Dodgers sign veteran reliever Daniel Hudson to minor-league deal

first_imgLiranzo, 23, has spent the past six seasons in the Atlanta Braves and Orioles systems including a 2014 season spent recovering from elbow surgery that involved inserting a screw to repair a fracture. He was 3-4 with a 4.85 ERA and 75 strikeouts in 65 innings over 31 games (including 12 starts) at Double-A last season. He has yet to pitch above the Double-A level.In order to clear a 40-man roster spot for Liranzo, the Dodgers moved right-hander Tom Koehler to the 60-day DL. Koehler suffered a shoulder injury during spring training.TURNER REHABDodgers third baseman Justin Turner has moved his rehab back to the team’s training complex in Glendale, Ariz., and could be cleared to pick up a bat in the next week.“A soft timeline on that, it was going to be three weeks after the initial injury that he would pick up a bat,” Roberts said.Turner suffered a non-displaced fracture in his left wrist two weeks ago Monday when he was hit by a pitch during a Cactus League game.WHO’S ON FIRST?Even though he was in the lineup as the starting center fielder on Monday, Joc Pederson worked out at first base during the Dodgers’ early workout. Pederson has worked out there on his own initiative a few times in the opening week and Roberts said it is on Pederson’s own initiative. Pederson has never played first base in the majors or minors – and don’t look for him there in a game any time soon.“In the near future? No,” Roberts said. “But I think it’s good for Joc to work on his footwork, his hands. That’s something that he detected himself and wanted to continue to improve his skill set, his versatility. To think he’s going to be in a major-league game soon? Probably not. But you never know at some point in the future and I applaud Joc for the work.”UP NEXTDodgers LHP Clayton Kershaw (0-1, 1.50 ERA) at Diamondbacks RHP Zack Godley (8-9, 3.37 ERA in 2017), 6:40 p.m., SportsNet LA The 31-year-old Hudson might have an upside story, but he already has a compelling story that includes two Tommy John surgeries. After the second surgery in 2012, he missed the entire 2013 season and pitched in just three big-league games in 2014. Primarily a starter in his first four seasons with the Chicago White Sox and Arizona Diamondbacks, Hudson moved to the bullpen after his second elbow surgery and emerged throwing harder. His fastball has averaged 95 mph since his return (compared to 93 mph as a starter) and he was a valuable piece of the Diamondbacks’ bullpen in 2015, posting a 3.86 ERA and 9.4 strikeouts per nine innings.The next season wasn’t as good, but Hudson signed a two-year, $11 million contract with the Pittsburgh Pirates as a free agent following the 2016 season. He posted a 4.38 ERA in 71 appearances for the Pirates last season and was traded to the Tampa Bay Rays for outfielder Corey Dickerson in February. The Rays released Hudson near the end of spring training.“We’ve obviously seen him for years,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. “We liked him. We’re going to see where this takes us.”Hudson will go to extended spring training for now before being assigned to a minor-league team.At the same time, the Dodgers swapped minor-league pitchers with the Baltimore Orioles, sending left-hander Luis Ysla to the Orioles in exchange for right-hander Jesus Liranzo. PHOENIX — The search for optionality never stops.The Dodgers’ bullpen allowed just one run (Joe Panik’s home run off Kenley Jansen on Friday) and six hits in 11 innings over the four-game season-opening series with the San Francisco Giants. On Monday, they added a potential veteran option, signing right-hander Daniel Hudson to a minor-league contract.“We’re excited to add him to the mix,” Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman said. “He’s got a big arm and we feel there’s a very compelling upside story.“We just think it’s a guy with real upside. We’ll work to tap into that and see where it goes.”center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
