Kylee Strong - Revolution Unites For One of Our Own

By Cory Halvorsen, Executive Director, 04/12/18, 9:00PM EDT


For those who have been with Revolution United for years, know that we are a large family. When one of our own is in need or has something that affects their family, it also affects the larger family here at the Revs.

Over the past week, one of our long time Revolution United players is in need of support, Kylee Morel has played with the club for a number of years, and in various positions. She was the goalkeeper for the state championship U19 girls team, and a leader that always brought a smile to the soccer field. Loud, energetic, and an infectious smile are just a few things that come to mind when you think of this athlete.

Recently, Kylee underwent surgery to remove a Pineal Gland Tumor the size of a grape. We have always known she is a fighter on and off the field, and continues to show that today. Earlier this afternoon, Kylee's family was informed that she does in fact have Pineoblastoma, a form of cancer. This will be one of her biggest fights yet, and have reassured her parents that the entire family of Revolution United is behind her.

To help with some unexpected expenses and the support the family, a friend of the family setup a GoFundMe page. If you are in a position to help, any little big will go a very long way.

As we are all getting ready to enter into the spring season of soccer, I can't help to think of the family. We are all extremely anxious to get on the soccer field, practice, player games, etc., but it is times like this that make you take a step back to think about how blessed we all are to be able to play and be a part of the game we love.

Please join me in showing your support for the Morel family; Revolution United is behind you, and here for anything you need!

Best wishes,
