June 13th, 2019, a day that would change our program forever. You see, when you are a part of a program like ours, you are a part of a family. On June 13, 2019, our former four-year Assistant Coach, Taylor Kenney was admitted into the ER with a multitude of unanswered medical concerns. After much time, Coach TK was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML).
After multiple rounds of chemotherapy, Coach TK was confirmed in remission of February 2020. As she began to gain back her strength, Coach was able to surprise our girls at practice and spend time in the gym she used to call home. For the 2019-20 season, we wore “TK” on our practice jerseys to let Coach know, nobody fights alone❗️
This past August, Coach received news that her blood count numbers had dropped indicating the cancer was likely back. Coach is currently undergoing more chemotherapy as she prepares for a Bone Marrow Transplant in NYC this December.
Coach TK has brought so much to our program, she has given years to our girls; weekends, late nights, early mornings, and most importantly, she has given us STRENGTH. Throughout this journey, Coach has created an Instagram (@tk_comeback ) to document her journey and share her battles. If you know Coach, this wasn’t easy for her❗️ Coach TK has given us so much and has shown our program what it means to fight. NOW, it is our turn to fight for her.
All gear proceeds will go towards Coach TK and her family in hopes of alleviating medical bills, travel expenses, etc. Once a Crusader, always a Crusader. We love you Coach TK and we are #strongertogether ❗️
