September is Children's Cancer Awareness month as you'll see the players in tomorrow's match walking out with special t-shirts and we have a young woman battling cancer from our own FC Dallas family that we want to tell you about.
Ellie Slate, an absolutely soccer-mad player from the FC Dallas '04 Girls Premier team, is battling Accute Lymphoblastic Leukemia and she needs our help. MLS has send 50 limited-edition Children's Cancer Awareness scarves to be sold in the team store on Saturday night only and normally the funds would be donated to a cancer charity or hospital but with one of our own facing this awful disease, the FC Dallas Foundation will be sending all proceeds to Ellie's Gofundme account. Get your scarf tomorrow in the team store to help benefit Ellie as she battles leukemia.
If you can't make the game on Saturday but would like to donate, please follow the link below as one of our FC Dallas family battles cancer.
