Varsity and JV Boys Soccer united in their support of Malia Jusczyk ‘27.
Jusczyk’s passed away at the age of 14 in June of 2023 after battling relapsed neuroblastoma.
Malia’s courageous fight with cancer demonstrated how her love of sports, specifically soccer, helped her during her two separate diagnoses. Malia used soccer as a young girl to help rehab after initially defeating her initial diagnosis of Stage IV neuroblastoma at the age of three and remained heavily involved in the sport despite the cancer relapsing in 2021 after nine years of remission.
For Kids’ Sake Foundation, which was launched in 2011, inspired by Malia’s strength and passion, helps other children in their own battles against pediatric cancer. The foundation funds trials and expenses for families that have limited to no options for their children. https://forkidssakefoundation.org/
