Holy Cow! Can't Miss Press is a proud sponsor of The Common Fan Sings, a grassroots effort launched by Dave Cihla (co-creator of the Shawon-O-Meter) to let a regular Cubs fan sing "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" during the 7th inning stretch at Wrigley Field. Sign the petition to let Dave and other deserving Cubs fans carry on the tradition started by Harry Caray. Then view the video of Dave and some of his supporters singing "Happy Birthday" to Shawon at the Shawon-O-MeetUp at Murphy's Bleachers

Chicago Baseball Cancer Charities

There is an interwoven world of Chicago Cubs baseball. No matter the season, we feel the tug of the game’s history. We feel an affection toward tradition. Childhood heroes remain forever young.

It's a community game, giving us a chance to put aside differences of race, creed, color and the rest.

In the spirit of that community, Can’t Miss Press is proud to donate a percentage of every book sale to the Chicago Baseball Cancer Charities' One Step At A Time Camp, which was founded in 1978 to assist families whose lives have been affected by childhood cancer and leukemia.

The camp’s mission is to provide positive, safe and fun camping and other outdoor experiences for children and adolescents diagnosed with cancer and leukemia, as well as assist survivors of childhood cancer and leukemia.

When spending time with others who have gone through the same experiences, children tend to lose their inhibitions about hair loss and other therapy-related issues. They feel free to test the limits of their physical abilities at the camp.

Since its opening three decades ago, the lives of more than 5,000 children have been touched through their experiences at Camp One Step At A Time.

Can’t Miss Press is made up of Chicago guys—guys who think that they’re part of a caring community. It’s not about seeing through one another. It’s about seeing one another through.

To a certain extent, the ultimate success of this book will not be measured by its duration, but by its donation.

Either through the purchase of this book or a separate contribution, please help us support One Step At A Time Camp.
