Killebrew-Thompson’s Cancer in Focus: ESPN’s Chris Berman to Interview 6-Time Cancer Survivor

Sun Valley Inn

ESPN broadcaster and long-time KTM supporter Chris “Boomer” Berman will facilitate the panel discussion at this year’s “Cancer in Focus” event, featuring inspirational former Minnesota Golden Gopher football player and six-time cancer survivor Casey O’Brien. O’Brien, winner of the 2019 Disney Spirit Award for most inspiring college football player, won’t be talking much about sports, not even golf. Instead, he’ll discuss his battle with cancer, what motivates him, and what research has meant to him on his cancer journey. Facilitated by Berman, a six-time honoree of the National Sports Media Association’s National Sportscaster of the Year award, the “Cancer in Focus” conversation will also feature O’Brien’s oncologist and cancer researcher Brenda Weigel, M.D., M.S., of the Masonic Cancer Center, University of Minnesota, and M Health Fairview Masonic Children’s Hospital. Located at the Sun Valley Inn in the Continental Room.
