John Austin Millen turned 3 years old on November 19th. He has been diagnosed with a brain stem tumor called DIPG - Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma. This is cancerous and inoperable. It is located in a part of the brain that controls vital functions. Most children with this kind of tumor survive a mere 9-12 months from the time of diagnosis.
John presented symptoms the first week of October, 2013. He was admitted and diagnosed at Women and Children's Hospital in Buffalo and began radiation treatment at Roswell Park Cancer Institute on October 20th. The radiation will likely shrink the tumor for a period of time; however, this disease progresses rapidly with very few options beyond a single course of radiation that have proven effective.

The Los Angeles Football League was born from passion for football & design and a combination of pride & love for Los Angeles.
In 1994, the year I moved to Los Angeles, both the Rams and the Raiders left LA. I went to one Rams game that year, the only NFL game I would ever attend in LA.
A few years ago, laid off an tired of hearing billionaires talk about how they were going to bring the NFL back to LA, I decided enough was enough. It was time to start our own league. After months of planning, I teamed up with two of the most amazing illustrators in the business and we set off on a mission to bring Los Angelenos a collection of neighborhood themed teams they could represent with pride. The Los Angeles Football League was born.
We hope our passion for the city and the game we love shines through in our designs.
Los Angeles Football League: Love my game. Respect my hood.
