MLS & Futbolr Give Back
Young Futbolr Francesco Galvano who plays for World Class FC has recently been diagnosed with Acute Lymphocystic Leukemia.
At only 11, I had the pleasure to watch Francesco play and I immediately became a huge fan from the way he dribbles with skill and plays with passion on the field. With the MLS All Star game taking place close to his hometown, I brought up Francesco's situation to fellow Futbolr, Corey Ashe of the Houston Dynamo, who this year is a first time all star. When Corey found out about Francesco's situation, Corey insisted on getting an officially signed MLS ALL STAR 2011 jersey to present to the young futbolr.
I want to say thanks to MLS, Houston Dynamo and all the players on the MLS All Star team for giving back, not only to the community, but to an 11 year old Futbolr Francesco Galvano.
We wish Francesco a speedy recovery and can't wait to see him back on the soccer field being the maestro he his.
We are asking all Futbolrs to make a donation:
All Donations will go towards any uncovered Medical Expenses. Any donations exceeding Medical Expenses will be donated to the Ronald Mcdonald House.
