NorCal Soccer Families,
 
Soccer is such a big part of all of our lives.  By becoming part of youth soccer, we unintentionally become part of an extended soccer family, and sometimes we need to provide comfort and support to that extended family.  Unfortunately our support is needed again.  There is a SoCal Blues U10 player who has been diagnosed with stage 3 ganglioneuroblastoma, a rare cancerous tumor of the nerve tissue that occurs in children.

You can read about her battle at her Caring Bridge site.  There was also an article written about her in the Orange County Register earlier this month.  According to her Caring Bridge site, she is struggling with her latest round of chemo.  

The SoCal Blues have had numerous fundraisers for the family including selling the Livestrong-type bracelets.  There are several teams in NorCal that have purchased the bracelets.  More information can be found on the SoCal Forums for teams and families who wish to help out in any way they choose appropriate.

Thought some of the local U10 girls teams who have been following the story might need an update.  

Please check out Katie's web site and keep her in your thoughts.

Here is a great link to see Katie prior to going into the hospital for a 30-day stay for her stem cell transplant.

I had this posted on another thread.  From one youth player to another, this is a great tribute that Z Freestyle put together and put on youtube.  This kid has great feet!

The video tribute was very impressive. I really appreciate it when the soccer community comes together to help our own. Here in NorCal we have Cassy Rowe and I've volunteered to referee (fees donated) at her benefit tournament and its a great cause.

Just to put a little perspective into our lives before tryout madness hits next week. This is a case where life is certainly more important than soccer!

Katie Hawley's cancer is back. Diagnosed after Surf Cup 2009, she had been NED since December 2009.  

Many of the U13 girls/parents might remember her noted absence with the SoCal Blues at the 2009 Mustang Stampede. In a true show of solidarity, a member of the Mustang Pride made, and handed out, hair ribbons to each of the teams to wear to show support. The tribute touched the coach so much, she called the Mustang offices to thank them for the tribute.

Going into the finals this weekend, maybe all of the U13 NorCal Girls teams can pay tribute to Katie. Something simple, yet important, like wearing tape with #3 on a cleat. Or wearing a hair ribbon in her current team colors light blue and white. Do what you feel is appropriate, but most important...hug your healthy DD and say a prayer for Katie.

There is currently a birthday card drive going on in SoCal for Katie's 13th birthday on March 10. It would be awesome for NorCal to send cards too!

If you would like to participate, you can PM me for her address.
