    A pancake dinner benefiting "A.J.'s Medical Fund" will host a pancake breakfast from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Sunday at Chops on Main.
    A.J.'s Medical Fund is a fundraising effort to benefit A.J. Peterson, son of Angela and Adrian Peterson. Adrian Peterson is a legendary Georgia Southern fullback who played from 1998–2001, led the Eagles to back-to-back national championships in 1999 and 2000 and is the program's all-time leading rusher and scorer.
    A.J. Peterson, 6, was recently diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor known as Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma, according to ESPN.com.
    The website reports, "DIPG primarily affects children between the ages of 5 and 7, and makes up 10-15 percent of all brain tumors in children, according to the website DIPGregistry.org. There are approximately 100-150 new cases of DIPG diagnosed each year in the United States, and 300 per year in all of North American and Europe."
    The pancake breakfast will feature Georgia Southern players, coaches and alumni. The meal costs $12 in advance or $15 at the door, and children under 4 eat free.
