Just got this email....Please let's all rally around this family


Hello all,

Not long ago we learned that Sally Kabel, 9-month old daughter of NYCBBB Founder
Matt Kabel, was diagnosed with leukemia. Matt and Nicole set up a few ways to
keep track of Sally's progress in her fight:

For now, they need love and good thoughts. Please help us in letting the Kabels
know that the NYCBBB family will give them the support they need now and down
the road. Like, follow, comment, visit the links above. We will keep you posted
on other ways to help as they are established.

Thank you very much. We'll be back in touch very soon with updates on the
upcoming season, and hope you're enjoying your summer.

Matt "praying for Sally every day" Soreco
Even if not a member of the NYCBB--please go show your Bills spirit and support.

Very sad story and hope the family finds some sense of peace in the situation as they work through the challenges in front of them.   Prayers go out to them.

This is how I know the Bills don't watch their fans...  This could be a good PR event for them and just make this guy feel a whole lot better for the weekend.

Almost unbelievably, Gretchen Geitter who is the Bills VP of Community Relations is not on LinkedIn.

I tried contacting her.

Pretty much par for the course.

I'll link the story to the Bills FB page. Maybe someone over there is awake.

Sent a message to whoever administers the Bills FB page.

(administrates?)

Thanks all, Scott Berchtold reached out a couple weeks ago when we were first in the hospital and sent Sally a Bills bear and autographed EJ Manuel photos to my sons. Since then we went through different diagnosis, at one point thinking it was a fluke virus and she was fine, but confirmed Leukemia last week. Not sure if Bills are aware of latest, most weren't as things changed so much so quickly. But they were one of the first responders.

I've been a NYCBB for a long time and Matt and the group that runs it are great guys! True Bills and Buffalo supporters.

The Buffalo Bills as an organization need to expand in the New York City market.   I travel there (from home in Syracuse) and I meet a lot of people who won't follow the Jets or Giants because they moved to New Jersey.  

I have absolutely no doubt in my mind that the Buffalo Bills would find a gold mine of fans in the metro New York City area, except NJ.

I sent a note to my ticket manager with a link to the website and asked if there was a contact person for something like this, hopefully I will hear back from her.

I'd like to see the Buffalo Bills play the New York Jets at Yankee Stadium.  The Bills will be the home team - the Jets the away team.  I guarantee if that happened you would see mostly Bills fans from the NYC area at the game.

All the best to you, Sally and your family, Matt.  I remember you from McFadden's, even if you don't remember me.  There is a whole world of people pulling for you.

Actually, OBD is very much in tune with NYCBB.  Matt noted above, as well.  There is at least one high profile Bills event at McFaddens every offseason.
