Reid My Mind Radio: Jake Olson – It’s A Snap!

Wednesday, November 18th, 2015

During the month of September while I was fully focused on #PennyPushUps2015; the Reid Family’s Fundraiser and Awareness Campaign supporting children with eye cancer, a related story almost slipped past my radar. I received an email about the story of a USC Long Snapper who was blind. The sender suggested I should feature this individual on Gatewave Radio.


I moved the email to my Gatewave folder and made a mental note to research the story further once I could focus more, i.e. after September.

Well, it just so happens that this young man is a retinoblastoma survivor himself.

Check out this latest story for Gatewave Radio featuring Jake Olson.

I included a little something extra for the Reid My Mind Radio version so make sure you listen through.
