Jordan Harris Fundraiser Tournament

Florida Soccer Club and the U17 team will be hosting an end of season tournament the weekend of February 11-12, 2012 to benefit Jordan Harris who is battling brain cancer.

Jordan was diagnosed in April 2011 with a rare stage 4 brain cancer called sPNET (Supratentorial Primitive Neuroectodermal Tumors). He had surgery to remove the 8cm X 8cm tumor from his brain on 4/14/11.

Thank God they were able to remove the entire tumor and after a spinal MRI, spinal tap and bone scan it was determined that it had not spread. He began radiation treatment in the middle of May. He went to Moffitt 5 days per week for radiation of his total brain and spine for 6 weeks. He recently completed 6 months of receiving aggressive chemotherapy treatment at All Children’s Hospital where he was hospitalized 4 days a month to receive 3 different chemotherapy drugs.

He now will begin an additional 6 months of an oral chemotherapy drug.

Donations for Jordan may be made payable to TTSA. Thank you for your support!
