DALLAS (WBAP/KLIF)- Life High School Oak Cliff was awarded a brand new weight room courtesy of Give a Child a Voice, a nonprofit organization founded by Eric Erdman, a terminally ill teen who is battling brain cancer. The goal of Give a Child a Voice is to end to child abuse, bullying, and life-threatening childhood illnesses. The organization works to help children and teens by showing them how powerful and important their voices can be.
“Before I was diagnosed with a life-threatening terminal illness, I fought every day of my life to find peace and strength to face my painful past, due to being a victim of child abuse and bullying. I started to transform my mind and body by going to the gym to create and focus on the best version of me. The gym allowed me to shut out all the noise in my life which eventually led to finding my voice, from the help and support of my community,” said Eric.
