Josh Bond battling cancer

From Boti's site:

The promising young guard is battling testicular cancer after having his US college dream dramatically cut short over the past fortnight.

And the basketball community - as it consistently does and should take humbling pride in - is rallying around the young man and his family as only a sporting community can.
Basketball SA tonight and tomorrow will have collection tins at suburban stadia for its junior fixtures and his club North Adelaide is selling BOND-6 stickers for $2 each.

They will be available at Adelaide Arena tomorrow for the 36ers-Crocodiles NBL fixture and the Sixers also will wear the sticker on their warm-up tops.

Adelaide players, staff and the club are donating money to Basketball SA's Bond family collection and also donating signed merchandise to the Rockets for the SBL club's further fund-raising efforts.
Full story is worth reading to see the tough sequence of events that led Josh to discover he had cancer.

If you can spare the gold coins, support the fundraising at the Sixers game on Saturday night and at other stadiums.

Horrible news.

I've coached against some of Bondys teams over the years. Dropped big numbers on us but more importantly is a great lad, always up for a chat once the game's over win or lose.

Will definately be giving tomorrow night. All the best to him and his family here's hoping he pulls thru.

Terrible to hear such bad news. Testicular cancer is the most common cancer in males aged 20 to 39 years and should receive more attention than it does.

I must admit he is one of my favourites in the ABL and I wish him a speedy recovery.. "Just when it looked like North's night was over, enter Bond, Josh Bond"

My message of support was marred and has been construed in the light it was not intended. For that I am truly sorry and apologise to anyone who was offended.

Yep Bondy needs a shit fight on hoops right now, fucked thing to say, he's been slayed for it and apologised so leave it now.

In future Jack being the clever little clown might be saved for a less sensitive topic.
