“@RacineRaiders It's with heavy heart that we share that former player and coach Jamie Isome passed away this morning. bit.ly/I2P2OS”

There are moments in life that are simply miraculous and truly joyous, like the birth of your first child.
Then, there are the times when you're thrown a curve. A cancer diagnosis is one of those times.
Jamie Isome, the husband of Tenille Isome, Razor Sharp Fitness Assistant General Manager and Personal Trainer, has experienced both.
Jamie is an active member of his community, a football player for the Racine Raiders and the Milwaukee Bone Crushers, and a bartender at Spinnakers in Racine.
On May 9, 2008, his daughter Jamie Renee Isome was born. Beautiful!
As Jamie and Tenille welcome this new member of their family, they also must struggle with Jamie's health. He's been diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. Ninety percent of the 5 inch tumor was removed surgically. Though Jamie's cancer can't be cured, he has started treatments to reduce the effects of the cancer and to help prolong his life.
You can help Jamie, too.
A fundraiser for Jamie and his family is being held on Saturday, June 14, 2008.

We know that here at Razor Sharp we’ve become a community within a community. We want to help our members to the best of our ability. As the medical bills continue to add up with Jamie’s treatments, we are partnering with Scores to host this event to help lighten their burden. Jamie and Tenille deserve to celebrate the birth of their daughter, rather than worry about mounting bills and the possibility of financial hardship.
Scores will continue the event after the silent auction at Razor Sharp. The event there will start at 5 pm. There will be a $10 charge at the door, food from 5-10, a DJ from 7-close, and prize drawings throughout the evening. All proceeds (donation at the door, drinks, prize ticket money & the bartender’s tips) from this event will be donated to the Jamie Isome Fund.
We hope that you consider this cause as one of those for which to give. Your support is sincerely appreciated by Jamie, Tenille, the Razor Sharp and Scores community and all their friends and family, and your donations are encouraged. We need your help to have a successful silent auction; donation examples could include gift certificates, event tickets, services, jewelry, etc. If you want to get involved, please contact Andrea Lowden, Fundraising Coordinator, by email: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 262-488-5127.
Thank you for your support! We look forward to seeing you Saturday, June 14th.
