Kofi Ankoma-Mensa also known by the nickname of King Fee. Born in 1991, Kofi was a former high school basketball player and NBA hopeful who passed away with cancer in 2010. He played on various teams and tournaments such as: CIA/Bounce, Team Ontario, 2008 NIKE Global Challenge and Team Canada. One of Kofi’s dying wishes was to raise money for children suffering from cancer at SickKids Hospital. Kofi was afflicted with a rare form of cancer (mesothelioma of the small intestine) and was 1 of only 4 recorded cases in the world and 1 of 2 kids ever known to have it at that time. While being treated for this aggressive form of cancer, Kofi received care from several hospitals both in Canada and the US. But he was particularly moved by the level of care he received from SickKids. Unfortunately, God had other plans and we lost him on November 15, 2010. With this tournament, we would like to raise a total of $32,000 in honor of Kofi’s jersey number (32) and so that we can send as much money into Mesothelioma cancer research as possible. We would love it if you can donate / sponsor or pass this invitation on to teams or organizations that may be interested in helping the cause so that we can all take part in helping SickKids Hospital improve their research on child cancers. Help support the King Fee Classic and make Kofi’s wish come true by clicking on the button below and donating to Sick Kids cancer research, you can also contribute by either sponsoring us or participating in The Annual King Fee Classic Tournament. Thank you for visiting and have a blessed day. The Ankoma-Mensa family.
