BRIAN MOORMAN COMMITTED TO KEEPING

THE P.U.N.T. FOUNDATION IN WESTERN NEW YORK

ORCHARD PARK, NEW YORK---Brian Moorman and his wife Amber are dedicated to keeping their P.U.N.T. Foundation doing its work for the families in our region fighting pediatric cancer, despite Tuesday’s news of his release from the Buffalo Bills.

The P.U.N.T. (Perseverance, Understanding,eNcouragement, Triumph) Foundation was established in 2004 to provide children affected by cancer and their families with the opportunities and support to enjoy the life they fight so hard for. The Foundation provides assistance, valuable family-centered programs and experiences designed to enrich their lives, provide them with support, and create memorable experiences. Community partners have included: Roswell Park Cancer Institute and Carly’s Club, Camp Good Days and Special Times, Buffalo’s Women and Children’s Hospital, and Strong Memorial Hospital.

“This amazing community has empowered the P.U.N.T. Foundation to help so many children with cancer and this is why the organization will carry on,” said Brian Moorman.“My wife and I are committed to the P.U.N.T. Foundation’s mission and I know the wonderful people in this region believe in and will continue to support the cause no matter where I am.”

P.U.N.T. Foundation programs include: Brian’s Game Day, which provides kids in treatment and their families with the opportunity to attend a Bills home game in a private suite away from the danger of germs and environmental elements; Helping Hands, which strives to alleviate some of the financial burden associated with a child fighting cancer; Brian’s Locker (at Roswell Park Cancer Institute) which serves as a mechanism to present families withgas and grocery cards and other items; Adopt-a-Family which bestows holiday presents to families; and Field of Dreams which makes possible memorable experiences for kids suffering from cancer.

“Brian’s long term and sincere dedication to our kids and their families has been a gift to this community,” said Lynn Pawlak, a mother from Orchard Park who was touched by the P.U.N.T. Foundation while her teenage son battled Desmoplastic Small Round Cell Tumor, a rare sarcoma. "We will never forget how Brian gave our son Andrew a quality of life in his final days last December, and there are countless stories like ours that reflect the impact of Brian Moorman's extraordinary compassion, humility and generosity.”

A two-time Pro Bowl Punter, Brian Moorman had entered his 12th season with the Buffalo Bills when he was released on Tuesday. He was signed on Wednesday by the Dallas Cowboys. Moorman has always made it a priority to use his stature as a professional athlete for a greater good.
