The below info comes from the gym that I currently train MMA at, C3 Athletics in Stamford, CT . It is a good cause, and a great way to receive some top notch instruction.
“Andre Margutti, a good friend and teammate of ours at Team Yamasaki, has been diagnosed with cancer. Andre came to the US a little more than 10 years ago and has been a great friend to all of us at Team Yamasaki. In addition to being a very upbeat and friendly guy, Andre is a hard worker. He turned 30 this year and recently started up his own construction company. He’s also competed in numerous BJJ competitions, has had a couple of amateur MMA fights, and has also taught capoeira.
Last week, Andre started radiotherapy and he will soon be starting chemotherapy. As you know, the costs for Andre’s treatment will be astronomical.
To help with some of these costs, we’re going to hold seminars at academies in the New England and Mid-Atlantic area of the east coast. All the money raised will go to Andre’s medical costs. In addition to black belts from Team Yamasaki, the following black belts have agreed to help us by teaching and / or opening up their schools to host seminars”
