Leigh Bodden Retweets Fan’s Request for Cancer Fund Donations

2,911

In an attempt to raise money for the Patricia Pratt Cancer Fighting Fund, Danny Pratt turned to Twitter. He asked Patriots cornerback Leigh Bodden for a favor, and Bodden listened.

On Saturday, Pratt tweeted Bodden, asking if the defensive back could retweet a message that asked followers to donate a dollar to support his mother's cancer-fighting fund. Bodden did so.

According to the fund's website, Patricia Pratt fought breast cancer twice and esophageal cancer a few years ago, before the disease returned. The family needs $10,000, and so far they have raised $2,988.
