Detroit Lion Gail Cogdill Needs Your Help

Detroit Lion Gail CogdillToday, you have the chance to help save a life. Kristen (Cogdill) Dunlap, daughter of former Detroit Lion Great Gail Cogdill, wrote Gridiron Greats Assistance Fund seeking help. Please, read her letter below and help Kristen save the life of her loving father.

My name is Kristen (Cogdill) Dunlap and I’m the oldest daughter of former Detroit Lion great Gail Cogdill (1960-1970). On behalf of the Cogdill family I’m reaching out to you today to ask you for your financial support in helping my father battle a life threatening heart condition. His heart condition was brought on by years of playing professional football during an era when players had no one looking out for their physical or financial best interests.

His last hope for survival is adult stem cell therapy. This is the same procedure that many current and former professional athletes are using to help recover from injury and have experienced life changing results. Except for his heart, my dad is in great shape which makes him the prime candidate for this procedure.

Without your support he may have less than 12 months to live. We ask that you help my dad and our family fight this battle as we are not prepared to lose him over an obstacle of money. It‘s not easy to ask for help, as we all have our own causes, but any size donation would be greatly appreciated.

We ask that you click on the link below to read more about my Dad and help support our fund raising efforts.


On behalf of the Cogdill family we appreciate your support.
Very Sincerely,
Kristen (Cogdill) Dunlap & Family
