Beyond the Games: Deanna Wicklund

Deanna Wicklund

When Loudonville's Deanna Wicklund was diagnosed with leukemia in 2013, an anonymous donor stepped up and helped saved her life.

A mom of four, Deanna knew she wanted to give back to families going through what hers had gone through, and the Wicklund Warriors were born.

In addition to raising money for local people, the Warriors are now matchmakers themselves -- and they partner with local sports teams to help spread the message of awareness.
