Dave Hackett had a very close call with colon cancer, is recovering, but needs our help. The inaugural Hackett Slash Fest is taking place December 10 at the Clairemont YMCA. Dave was recently hospitalized for emergency colon-cancer surgery, during which doctors successfully removed a cancerous tumor. Total Cost: over $100K. You can also donate directly, and there are Loop Of Death limited posters for sale on this site.
