Beads of Hope

Beads of Hope offers words and tokens of courage to children undergoing treatment for cancer while at the same time bringing awareness to those participating of the importance and impact their gesture of support brings.  The Patrick Wiese Foundation provided funding for the CBA and Homer Varsity Baseball teams to participate in the Golisano Children’s Hospital Carry A Bead program.  Pat and Jack Sheridan discussed the importance that it has for children undergoing treatment. 

 Each athlete received a matched bead set that they wore during warmups. We believe that good intentions and caring thoughts go into the bead during the intentional act of caring. One bead as well as a signed note of encouragement was returned and given to a child undergoing cancer treatment during their “normal” day.  The CBA and Homer baseball players kept the matched bead as a reminder of their commitment to be a direct source of encouragement to a child in Beads of Courage. 

The student-athletes response to the program was amazing as can be seen from some of the attached photos of them writing their notes of encouragement.  Also included are two of the notes that a cancer patient will be receiving.

Less than a year after this report, former Le Moyne baseball player Patrick Wiese has made monumental steps in his recovery. Once the MVP of the Le Moyne baseball team, Wiese was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma cancer in his right knee the summer before his senior season. After that, Wiese faced a total knee replacement and months of intense chemotherapy. We watched on CNY Central as Wiese worked through his rehabilitation, struggling to simply turn the pedals on a stationary bicycle… Continue reading

THE FIRST PITCH AND PAT WIESE: BASEBALL, CANCER – AND A SENSE OF MISSION

post11.jpg

A few days ago, Pat Wiese took a call from Jason Smorol, general manager of the Syracuse Chiefs. Smorol wondered if Pat would throw out the first pitch Friday at NBT Stadium, where the Chiefs were about to play Pawtucket in their first playoff game in Syracuse in 20 years. Pat said sure, but he had an idea for sharing the moment. At Christian Brothers Academy, his high school baseball coach was Tom Dotterer. “I knew him since eighth grade, and he was such a crucial part of helping me to grow up in high school,” Pat said. “He had the capacity to teach you as a person and to help you become a man.” … Continue reading

RETURNING FROM A BIGGER BATTLE

post7

Last season while playing for the Vermont Mountaineers, Patrick Wiese was experience excruciating pain in his knee. It turns out the 21 year old had a rare form of bone cancer. The tumor ended his baseball career, but for one night Wiese was back out on the diamond. Wiese was invited by the Mountaineers to throw out the ceremonial first pitch before Friday night’s game against Laconia. Wiese’s tumor was removed back in October along with his knee, femur, some tendons and ligaments. You wouldn’t know it by the strike he threw on that first pitch. All night, money was raised for The Patrick Wiese Foundation to support research as well as helping cancer patients and their families. What Patrick is doing now is greater than the game of baseball, but he sure felt good being back at Montpelier Recreation Field… Continue Reading
