Even though he was a standout high school athlete in three sports, it was no surprise to those that knew him when Patrick Wiese made the commitment to pursue his first love: Baseball. He accepted an offer from Le Moyne College and began his life as a Dolphin. Wiese played each and every game with gusto, skill and joy. Then, after sleepless nights with excruciating knee pain, he sought an MRI. The results came out of left field. Wiese was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a rare bone cancer. He attacked physical therapy and chemotherapy as he would a pitcher with a great fastball. Patrick and his teammates established this fund to support cancer research, physical support for cancer patients as well as academic needs of patients who received their diagnosis while still pursuing an education.
