Blue Springs family cares for cancer-stricken families through Turkey Bowl

Life gave Jake Cavanaugh every reason to resent it. As a 16-year old Blue Springs High School football player, Jake came home from practice complaining that his leg hurt. He died on Dec. 23, 2010, after a nearly six-year battle with osteosarcoma. Since then, his family has helped others. Three families affected by cancer will benefit from the foundation and Saturday’s Jake Cavanaugh Turkey Bowl at Blue Springs High School.
