ACTING OUT MISSION

Acting Out Against Cancer is a nonprofit corporation and shall operate exclusively for charitable purposes.  Our purpose is to provide support and encouragement for individuals and their families facing the challenges of cancer. 

 

We provide Bravery Bags for hospitalized patients and those undergoing treatment. AOAC is here to support and encourage patients in all walks of cancer.  We understand that each day can be a different struggle. 

OUR REASON

Bill was diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme in January 2020. We were told that this brain tumor was inoperable.  Bill is an incredible man with a larger than life personality and has given so much to both his family and the community. Despite his struggles, he continues to try to make those who cross his path leave with a smile.  

Bill's hobbies include being an amateur meteorologist, an armchair film and music critic, and human GPS.  He also enjoys fishing, imitating Charles Barkley's swing on the golf course, and posting and reading rants on Facebook. 

All kidding aside, Bill has spent the majority of his time and energy giving to his family and serving the community.  He has coached countless kids in baseball, basketball, soccer, and volleyball.  He is a past President of a local baseball association, organized and ran church basketball leagues, and was Men's Club President at his local parish.  Bill was also very active in Kansas City's community theater scene, appearing in over 42 plays with 12 different theater groups.  Bill is always the first one to volunteer to help, looking to take care of others and has been a great role model, mentor, and friend to countless individuals.
