Tommy McNamara, midfielder for pro soccer team, the New England Revolution, held a Lung Cancer Awareness Month fundraiser to benefit lung cancer research. His mom, Kerry McNamara, was diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer just over one year ago.

His online auction featured signed memorabilia from Tommy’s Revolution teammates, the New England Patriots, and from his friends throughout Major League Soccer; as well as game tickets and an opportunity to meet the team at a training session.
