Join Us at Main Event in Support of Kathey Barrera
Courage, Resilience, Passion – traits FC Garra proudly shares with our very own, Kathey Barrera.
In May, Kathey was diagnosed with Signet Ring Cell Carcinoma (SRCC), a rare form of stomach cancer. While the chemotherapy treatments have weakened her body and caused her to lose her hair, her spirit is stronger than ever as friends and family continue to show an outpouring of love and support for this incredible woman of faith. Her son, who plays for our U13 soccer team, surprised Kathey this summer when he came home with a shaved head in honor of his mother. They now proudly sport their new style together. Such acts of love are not uncommon in the Barrera family, as Kathey has always emphasized the importance of togetherness.
Kathey is a dedicated wife, sister, daughter and mother of 2 boys and 1 girl. For the past two years, she has served on the FC Garra Board of Directors, providing valuable insight and support for our teams, players and overall program.
While SRCC is difficult to treat, Kathey is determined to fight. Her FC Garra family is determined to fight alongside her. In an effort to show our love and appreciation, we will be hosting a special event in Kathey’s honor to raise funds for her medical expenses and daily living costs. Our goal is to raise $10,000 for Kathey and her family. Let’s show our support for Kathey as she continues to show us the true meaning of courage, resilience and passion during this difficult time.
