TODAY Show host Hoda Kotb is looking or your help as she spotlights childhood cancer in an effort to raise money for the American Cancer Society as part of the TODAY’s “Shine a Light” campaign.

Kotb, a cancer survivor herself, will spotlight the efforts being made by the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia to combat childhood cancer.

In stories airing Wednesday and Thursday during the TODAY Show, Kotb will focus on the effort being made to save young lives including the work done at CHOP.

“Cancer is difficult to endure as an adult. I can only imagine how tough it would be for a child – it’s such a grownup disease,” said Kotb on her fundraiser page. “It just so happens that several years ago the TODAY Show sent me to a children’s cancer hospital for a series of stories. I was frozen at the door… did not want to walk inside. I guess I was just afraid to see so much pain. But with one glimpse of the first child I saw there, another feeling washed over me. I was feeling hopeful, almost joyful.”

NBC10 News anchor Vai Sikahema is already a hero to plenty of Philly sports fans (take that goalpost). And, he is one of the all-time greats in the Nintendo classic Tecmo Super Bowl.

But soon, he could also be a hall of famer.

The Polynesian Football Hall of Fame recently named Vai, a two-time Pro Bowler in an eight year NFL career that wrapped up with the Eagles, a finalist for enshrinement into the Hawaii-based hall.

Vai, who is proud of his Tongan ancestry, joins 24 other football greats with Polynesian ancestry on the list of nominees.

“It is a tremendous honor to be nominated with so many outstanding men, not simply athletes, but very accomplished men,” Vai said. “Among the nominees is a university chancellor, a former candidate for governor in the state of Maryland, business leaders, an NFL executive and successful coaches.”

Vai, a Brigham Young University alum, is also quite accomplished himself going on to a successful career as a sportscaster then news anchor, introducing kids without parents to potential adoptive parents through "Wednesday's Child" segments and also serving a leader in the Mormon community.

“It's gratifying to represent Polynesia, our rich history with football and that our posterity know that we also got it done in the classroom as well.”

Will Vai make the Hall? The class of 2015 will be announced next month.
