Dear MESA Families,
In all of our families, when something rocks us and our every day hustle and bustle, we circle the wagons and try to help in any way we can. One of our MESA family members is battling the fight of her life and we want her to know we are thinking about her and are here for her.
One of MESA Aquatics’ former swimmers, 15 year old Yulianna Montanez, was recently diagnosed with Hodgkin Lymphoma, and is currently receiving treatments through 8-day hospital stints each month.
If there is anything that her coaches and teammates at MESA Aquatics have witnessed over the years, its that Yulianna has met head on any challenge in front of her with a smile and humility that cleverly disguised her tenacity. And if there is anything that Yulianna will know after this fundraiser, its that although she may not be on deck anymore, she is still thought about, represented, and loved by her MESA family.
We want to help in any way we could. The color representing Hodgkin Lymphoma Awareness is purple, so MESA Aquatics will be selling PURPLE MESA Aquatics caps with Yulianna’s initials YM on them in support of Yulianna’s fight against Hodgkin Lymphoma. I have attached a proof to this email so everyone can see what the caps will look like. Swimmers are encouraged to wear them at both practice and swim meets.
We are selling these caps at $12 each with ALL proceeds going to help the Montanez family out as best we can. I will only be ordering 75 caps so first come, first serve. If the demand is there, I may place a second order.
Franceli Seixas will be on deck Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 6-8pm to take pre-orders and collect cash. To guarantee a purple MESA cap in support of Yulianna, please sign up with Franceli and bring cash with you.
I want to thank
you all in advance for any and all help. The Montanez family
is very appreciative of the love and support already.
