B.YONEST NEWZ: Stefanie Spielman passes away
B.YONEST NEWZ.. The Buckeye Nation has HEAVY hearts…
The Ohio State Buckeye Football Family is more than just the players and coaches. It’s bigger than Scarlet and Grey. The Buckeye Family is the fans, the experience, the wins, the losses. The Buckeye Family has a heart beat and we all beat together. Stefanie Spielman, wife of former Ohio State Hall of Fame line backer Chris Spielman, is a humongous part of the Buckeye Family. Today, Stefanie lost her 11 year bout with Breast Cancer and the whole City of Columbus (and the other Buckeyes Worldwide as well) feel the loss.
Stefanie was the face of Breast Cancer Awareness in Columbus Ohio. You can’t mention the name “Spielman” without EVERYONE thinking of (both) Chris and Stefanie. 11 years with Breast Cancer and 5 different stints and she fought every minute of it. It’s so difficult to type this truthfully because it seems so unrealistic. Chris Spielman has such a love for Ohio State. He’s highly respected in the community, State and Country. Our prayers go out to the Spielman family and the Buckeye Nation.
Saturday, November 20th, Ohio State plays The University of Michigan. Is it a tad coincidental, I don’t know. I DO believe The Bucks will play with a heavy heart and an excited spirit. They will have a definite patch, number or name sticker representing Stefanie and all she means to the Ohio State Community. Stefanie, rest in peace sweetheart. What you overcame, taught us and showed me personally is enough for a lifetime. We’ll take care of Chris (as you know) and we love you Stefanie.
Sidenote: Stefanie Spielman was a Crusader for Breast Cancer Awareness, people. The Stefanie Spielman Fund raised MILLIONS of dollars, spoke thousands of times and gave hour after hour to find a Cure for the disease that is taking too many lives.. Cancer. Let’s not let Stefanie and the other millions of people who passed away, die for none. Please, keep them all in mind and let’s find a cure for this damn thing.
