Gonna miss you Chris. Our deepest and heartfelt condolences go out to Popoff family. RIP ......

Soccer isn’t something that you can fake, its a feeling, a passion, a lifestyle. If you don’t live, eat, sleep, and breath soccer, then you are not a true Soccer Player, you just wear the jersey. ......

If you want to see me, you must be quick. if you want to catch me, you must be fast. if you want to beat me, you must be kidding. ......

My girlfriend told me to choose between her and soccer…I am really gonna miss her. LOL ......

Every moment you spend not playing soccer, someone out there is getting better than you. ......

Fundraising for Gabe’s funeral expenses

 

Gabriel S. Silva 
August 19, 1984 – November 17, 2018

Unfortunately, I have to share really bad news with all of you today.

With a heavy heart I pass on the news that Gabriel Silva aka GABE passed away on Saturday November 11/17/2018 at 10:00 pm. It was sad to lose not only a club member but a friend!!! Gabriel was battling Lymphoblastic lymphoma cancer for over a year. He was valued friend, cheerful and kind by nature. The type of person other people wanted to be around. Gabe will be greatly missed by his family and all his friends.

With that said, I hope that you will find it in your hearts to help Gabriel’s family in their time of need. While Gabriel was going through chemotherapy they have suffered tremendous burden. Especially, since he was main breadwinner in the family. This ordeal took its toll personally and financially on Gabe’s family and they will now need more than just your prayers. You’ll have my eternal gratitude, god bless.

TODD WILLIS



Brothers, one of our members Todd Willis, a current member of the Islanders 50 FC team suffered a stroke last and have been hospitalized since. He will need lots of good energy and good vibes from all of the Last Dream Soccer Club members. We all hope that he will overcome this unexpected illness very soon and will be back on the soccer field as good as new.  As you are healing, may you feel warmth and compassion from all who care about him. Best wishes that you will soon be back to doing all the things you love.

Todd is currently admitted in the hospital at St Mary’s on 45th Street undergoing therapy. We have set up a go fund me page to assist with his hospital cost. To make a donation, please click the link below.

GABRIEL SILVA

It looks like once again I have to be the bearer of bad news. Gabriel’s PET (positron emission tomography) scan came back positive. The masses and fluid in his lungs came back. I want to thank everyone who helped to support Gabriel Siva’s GoFundMe complain in the past. But, we are done yet.
About 6 months ago he was diagnosed with acute Lymphoblastic Lymphoma. He completed his 8th chemo therapy about a month ago. But, it looks like remission didn’t last very long. Few days ago Gabe experienced a shortness of breath and when back to the hospital for tests. The results are not what we were looking for, cancer came back.

This time around Gabe will need a more aggressive treatment. He will be going to Tampa for perhaps 3 months, possibly even longer. The plan is calling for two aggressive chemo therapies with more advanced drugs every two weeks and once cancer goes in to remission he will be doing a BMT. A bone marrow transplant is a treatment that replaces unhealthy marrow with a healthy one. It’s also called a blood or marrow transplant. Bone marrow is a soft, sponge-like tissue in the center of most bones. It produces white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets. But, before transplant, he will get chemo chemotherapy with or without radiation to destroy the diseased blood-forming cells and marrow. Then, healthy cells are given to Gabe, the procedure is not surgery. The new cells go into his bloodstream through an intravenous (IV) line. It’s just like getting blood or medicine through an IV. The cells find their way into marrow, where they grow and start to make healthy red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets.

People, he will need lots of good energy and good vibes. We all hope that he will overcome this scary disease very soon. Gabriel will have to stay in Tampa for a prolong period of time. He and his family will have to travel back and forth and that take money, a lot of money. Keep in mind, all of this time he hasn’t been work. Therefore, if you can find in your heart to help him and his family in this time of need will be greatly appreciated. Please, believe me anything you can do will help. I will resurrect the GoFundMe page and will schedule a fundraising campaign at the Last Dream Park. Thanks again and god bless.

Letter from Gabriel Silva

I will like to express my deepest gratitude to every one of the members of Last Dream Soccer. The last two months have been a roller-coaster of emotions since the diagnosis of my Lymphoblastic Leukemia. The emotional and financial support of all of you, my friends have been more than I have ever expected. Me and my family will always be thankful for such compassion in this time of our lives.

I don’t know what the future holds for us, only God knows, But I promise to pay it forward one day. I will like to give a special thanks to Dimitri, Mauricio, George, Mr. Miller, Carlos, Pica, Osmin, Willie, Joe, Colombo, Geneva and Sammy for going above and beyond to help me. It’s an honor to be a member of such a great community of players and friends. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart,

God Bless,
Gabriel
Ps. I’ll be back soon in the field, good luck trying to catch me……

REALECT MAYOR PINTO

Royal Palm Beach Mayor Fred Pinto is seeking a second term with the gavel, asking residents of the village to return him to the dais on Tuesday, March 13.

Pinto faces a challenge from former Councilwoman Martha Webster in a rematch of Royal Palm Beach’s 2016 mayoral election.

Pinto was first elected to the council in 2003. He recalled how he was encouraged to seek the open seat at the time, winning a four-way race. He believes his Wall Street experience has served him and the village in business decisions made during his time on the council, and since he was elected mayor two years ago.

His greatest concern lies with the safety of residents.

“We talk about quality of life. The key component to a high quality of life is people want to feel safe,” Pinto said. “They want to feel like their children are safe. They want to feel their parents, their grandparents are safe. Everybody wants a safe environment.”

Pinto is confident in the work he, the other council members and village staff have put in to bring safety to the village, stressing that the crime statistics decrease with each passing year.

LAST DREAM SOCCER CLUB

Seminole Palms Park

ENTRANCE: 151 Lamstein Lane, Royal Palm Beach, Florida 33411
HOURS: Sunrise – Sunset *lighted athletic fields (permit required) open until 10:00 pm

Clean Fun

Club member, there was a problem at Seminole Palms Park last Sunday. Park was left dirty, garbage everywhere. Now, I’m not saying our guys done that. But, I need you guys to be aware that it is a public park and no drinking is allowed. In order to keep the park clean club will purchase large garbage bags, buy a couple of trashcans and assigned the trash cans to the captains of the teams that stay after the game so they can clean up their own mess. Once the games are over (after 4 PM) you need to clean up after yourselves. You are NOT responsible for keeping the entire park clean, but you are responsible for picking up your trash. Thank you in advance for your cooperation

Clothing Drive

What’s old becomes new. Please, consider the used soccer ball in the trunk of your car or ball bag sitting in your garage. Last Dream is currently running ‘Pass It On’ clothing drive to collect and donate new and used soccer equipment helping to redistribute items to communities that have limited access to proper gear. The goal is to collect and redistribute soccer equipment to people and communities around Florida and the world. Give back and share the joy of the game with others! Please see Mike Miller or Bill Shea on Sunday. Thank you!I wanted to share a thank you letter from the church organization in Jamaica that benefited from the donations of soccer gears (balls, boots, uniforms, etc.) from the Last Dream Soccer Club. As fellow soccer players, it is heartwarming to see that the items that we (Last Dream Soccer Club) donate are put to good use in keeping the spirit and passion for the sport alive in the hearts of these young people. On behalf of the Palm Beach Islanders Soccer Club we sincerely thank you.
