Del Ballard

In 2010 I was diagnosed with tonsil cancer and from that day on my life has been forever changed.  Being a Professional Bowler for over 30 years, you meet a lot of people and become a part of a fantastic bowling community. It was only a natural fit that I bring the sport I love, bowling, into the world of trying to Fight The Big “C”. Helping our community and others while going through the cancer journey is now a passion for me and my family. I continue to travel as a PBA Tour Representative ad coach both domestically and internationally and own and operate four pro-shops: Ballard’ Bowling Solutions in the Ft. Worth area. Bowling in our community working together to lick The Big “C”, that’s the game plan.

I still remember that day in May 2010, when I heard the doctor say to Del, “You have tonsil cancer.” For the next year and a half to two years, my life was a complete blur. Our lives were forever hanged by the Big “C”. Ballard vs. The Big “C” was brought to life two years after Del’s diagnosis in 2012. Being involved in the bowling industry for over 30 years, it’s the fantastic bowling community that become your extended family. It was only fitting that we use the vehicle we know to help others in their fight with the Big “C”. Every day we are thankful for our family and friends that have omitted to help us in the Fight.
