Sounds of the Hurricane at CTCA
Several University of Tulsa football players, including Alec Henry, Michael Mudoh and Billy LaFortune, above standing, took a night off this summer before football practice started to entertain patients at the Cancer Treatment Centers of America during the monthly karaoke night.
Before the players entertained the audience, TU Head Football Coach Bill Blankenship talked about his battle with cancer in the 1980s. Blankenship said, “I encourage you, just be encouraged. There are a lot of us survivors out there, and we don’t want it to be a secret that we understand what you’re going through and where you come from.” TU’s Associate Athletic Director of Communications Don Tomkalski’s wife, Gary Ann Tomkalski, is the Patient Activity Coordinator at , and together they coordinated the event.
