 During his first NFL off-season, Coty has humbly accepted the challenge to raise over $100,000 for The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (better known as LLS). LLS is the worlds’ largest voluntary health organization dedicated to finding a cure for leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease, and improving the quality of life of patients and their families.  LLS funds lifesaving blood cancer research around the world and provides free information and support services for patients.

His intimate connection with blood cancer has inspired Coty to assist families and individuals stricken with this disease.  This year marks the thirteenth anniversary of his older brother Jamaar Sensabaugh’s sudden death from leukemia.  One week after his 16th birthday, Jamaar’s life abruptly ended leaving behind his family, a huge life of promise, and his then 11-year-old baby brother Coty.
“My big brother was my best friend,” said Coty. “My family and I struggled with Jamaar’s death for a long time, yet that circumstance molded me into the man I am today and gave me the motivation to fight against this disease.”

Throughout his high school and college career, Coty has always had a spiritual connection with his brother.  He believes that although his brother is not physically with him, Jamaar is always watching over him and guiding him.

Coty is taking part in The Nashville Man and Woman of the Year campaign for LLS, which officially starts on April 4, 2013, with the winner being crowned on June 13, 2013.  This 10-week competition is filled with appearances and events to support Coty in raising awareness, monetary funds, and interact with hundreds of families and individuals directly and indirectly affected by these horrible diseases.

“It seems like everyday I meet someone who has a close connection with blood cancer, and so many people are encouraged by my story,” said Coty.

“A Fight For Jamaar” is his campaign motto, rightfully named after his big brother. “My brother’s life was stripped suddenly from my family.  Jamaar was never able to fight for his life, and it is my responsibility to fight the good fight for him.”
