Former NFL player Dominic Austin, who played 3 seasons with the Indianapolis Colts, is also a cancer survivor who discovered he had a form of the deadly disease after his playing career had come to an end.

it was while he was getting treatment that he discovered a huge problem, many cancer patients are forced to cancel or reschedule treatment often because they don't have transportation or they are dealing with a financial hardship that prevents them from getting treated, which in turn, could lead to deadlier consequences down the road.

That's why Austin created "Tackles 4 Cancer" whose mission is to improve the quality of life for cancer patients through transportation through fundraising and community building events.

On this #GivingTuesday, Melz On The MIC spent some time to talk to Dominic about Tackles 4 Cancer but first, we discuss his playing career, his journey and battle with cancer and shares the story on what inspired him to create Tackles 4 Cancer and what you can do to donate.

Today is the last day to donate to Tackles 4 Cancer on their Facebook page and every dollar you donate will be MATCHED by Facebook.
