Washington Redskins Leonard Hankerson
Hankerson was drafted by the Washington Redskins in the third round of the 2011 NFL Draft. Hankerson made his NFL debut in Week 7 against the Carolina Panthers. In Week 9 against the San Francisco 49ers, he made his first career start. His rookie season was cut short after suffering a subluxation of his right hip and a torn labrum in his second game as a starter against the Miami Dolphins. On November 15, Hankerson was officially placed on injured reserve.
After nearly three months of relying solely on physical therapy, it was confirmed that Hankerson had surgery on his hip on February 21, 2012. Hankerson was fully healed from the surgery and ready by the start of training camp in late July. In the preseason, he competed with and lost to Josh Morgan for the starting flanker position. In Week 2 against the St. Louis Rams, he recorded his first career touchdown after catching a 68-yard pass from Robert Griffin III. In the Week 15 win over the Cleveland Browns, he would score two touchdowns with one of the them being a 54-yard touchdown pass while under triple coverage from Kirk Cousins.
Cinderella Cares through out the year accept donations of any amount, however we officially fund-raise two times a year. October – November for our 2013 Comedy for Cure event and then March-April for our once a year giving to the people on the front line making a difference in research, advocacy, counseling, and free lung cancer screen. Your dollars are tax deductible. We eventually would like to sponsor families currently receiving Chemo treatment with care packages. We are not there yet but to come in the future. Please I challenge each of you to donate $10 or more by the end of November Lung Cancer Awareness Month.
