Sonke Family Seeking Cancer Relief donations


This article originally appeared today at InsideLacrosse.com

The best part about lacrosse is all of the tremendous people and amazing friends that we get to meet and become close with through the game. For many of us within the lacrosse community, one of those great men is Jeff Sonke, a former MLL All-Star midfielder on the Baltimore Bayhawks and Denver Outlaws and a University of North Carolina graduate. Jeff was truly one of the best players, teammates and people that has ever played the game.

Currently, Jeff resides in Atlanta with his wife, Casey, and their daughter, Sienna. They are going through a challenging time right now, as Casey has developed a rare form of cancer called a Desmoid Tumor in her abdomen. She has been to four hospitals, seen four medical oncologists, lost a pregnancy, had two needle biopsies, six CT scans, six rounds of chemo and she is still fighting.

At this point, Casey has been able to regain some of her strength and her tumor has shrunk from a small watermelon to a grapefruit. She is now able to go out and play with her daughter and has started the process of being active again. 

The Sonkes are asking for our support by donating to the Desmoid Tumor Relief Fund please visit Inside Lacrosse at this link to find out what you can do to help
