Ben Rouse has an interesting story. The Milwaukee Brewers’ fan, who has Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia, is on a mission to see all 162 Brewers games this season. Ben received a bone marrow transplant and doing great ever since. He isn’t out of the clear yet, but things are looking better every day.
In 2011, Ben decided he wanted to see all 162 Brewers games and thus began planning. With a little help from the Brewers he is making it come true this year. On his season long journey he is raising awareness for Be the Match Registry.
It has been fun so far following Ben, and I can’t wait to see how the rest of the season goes for him. I think you’ll like the site as well, so head on over and check it out at Ben Rouse’s Brewers Mission 162. Ben does a daily blog which has been fun to follow as he meets new interesting people along the way. You can also donate to Be the Match on his site and I encourage you to do so.
