Fundraising Campaign for Gabriel

Stuff happens, as they say. It’s how you deal with it that speaks volumes
Unfortunately, I have to share bad news with you today. One of the Last Dream Club members Gabriel Silva was diagnosed with cancer acute Lymphoblastic Lymphoma to be more accurate. Lymphoblastic lymphoma is very rare in adults and usually, occurs in people under the age of 35. It is very similar to acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. In lymphoma, the abnormal lymphocytes are generally in the lymph nodes or thymus gland, but in acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia they are mainly in the blood and bone marrow. Gabriel and his family are going through some very rough time right now, but I believe that with a little help from his friends he will get through this with flying colors.
The word cancer elicits emotion from most people. Most people know someone who has been touched by cancer in some way. Writing an encouraging message to someone affected by cancer is sometimes difficult. I’m having hard time finding the right words due to the seriousness of the situation. However, I have no doubt that Gabriel will fight cancer with the same ferocious determination that he have with other challenges in his life. I know that the great strength he has will prevail.
With that said, I hope that you will find it in your heart to help Gabriel and his family in his time of need. Gabriel is self-employed and while he is going through chemotherapy will not be able to work as much as he would like. Therapy will take about 8 month to complete, during which time Gabriel will need more than just your prayers. If you can find it in your heart to assist Gabriel and his family, please contact

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