I could not be happier to be apart of this event and the charitable elements that are now affiliated with our team.
“Mike Tyson showed a gentle and caring spirit during visits to hospitalized children at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center. He brought the children gifts, but more importantly, he took the time to make each child feel special. The children and their parents really enjoyed meeting him.” – Kyla Mohney, Child Life specialist Saint Joseph Hospital.
Mike Tyson says”I am truly grateful for the care and dedication the staff at Saint Joseph’s Hospital did in attempting to save the life of my beloved daughter, Exodus Sierra Tyson. Although she is no longer with us, I am honored and humbled that her memory will live on through generous donors such as Lamborghini. I embark on a life of one day contributing to families facing the tragic loss of a young child like myself, through establishing a foundation that will be of service to families in crisis in Phoenix and throughout the country.”
