ESPN RADIO "MIKE AND MIKE IN THE MORNING" co-host MIKE GREENBERG and his wife STACY STEPONATE GREENBERG are donating $100,000 to THE V FOUNDATION FOR CANCER RESEARCH to fight breast cancer. The donation comes after the release of "All You Could Ask For," MIKE GREENBERG's debut novel about three women who meet in an online breast cancer support forum, inspired by the GREENBERGS' friend HEIDI ARMITAGE, who died of breast cancer in 2009. All author's profits from the book are being donated to the V FOUNDATION through the HEIDI'S ANGELS charity project founded by the GREENBERGS.
ARMITAGE's husband ADAM GREEN said, "HEIDI told us that the friends she met online with similar conditions - her 'breast friends,’ as she said - helped her in a way the rest of us couldn't: by supporting each other with first-hand experience. She would have been glad that what STACY and MICHAEL have done will bring new hope to her friends.”
MIKE GREENBERG added, “This project was a labor of love and the most worthwhile undertaking of my career. I'm very grateful to everyone who supported it.”
"After choosing a cute outfit or planning a fun afternoon or generally doing something awesome, HEIDI used to smile and say, 'I hear clapping. Can you hear it?'” added GREEN. “For this donation, I hope STACY and MICHAEL can hear all of us clapping."
