La Costa Canyon High School will hold a charitable one-day tournament to support Aaron Loy. Please check out his Caring Bridge page for updates on his condition, the details of the event below, and then support in any way you can.
From La Costa Canyon coach Jesse Foss to the community:
“As most of you are aware Aaron Loy, (La Costa Canyon ’13) is in the midst of a grueling recovery process after a bout with an extremely aggressive non-vaccinate-able strain of Neisseria (bacterial) meningitis. The meningitis led to sepsis (blood infection) and disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC) which caused severe complications. Antibiotics have since eradicated the meningitis, however Aaron’s body is valiantly fighting to recover from the related complications. While meningococcal disease is often fatal, doctors were able to save Aaron’s life but unfortunately had to amputate both his lower legs. Aaron now faces a long and challenging road to recovery.
Aaron is a very special person and has touched many lives. We will be holding a one-day lacrosse shootout for Aaron on Saturday, December 28th at La Costa Canyon HS. This is a great way to show your support for Aaron and his family while doing something that he loves, playing lacrosse! There are games for all ages of players and everyone is welcome to participate. Please click on the link and follow the instructions on registering for the tournament; http://www.aaronloylacrosseshootout.com/
If you are not able to attend but would like to make a tax deductible contribution, Aaron’s family has chosen to fund raise with Help Hope Live. Help Hope Live assures fiscal accountability of funds raised and tax deductible for donors. Donors can be sure that funds donated will be used only to pay or reimburse medically-related expenses such as extensive medical costs, prosthetics, and rehabilitation costs, not covered by insurance. To make a tax-deductible donation to this fundraising campaign, follow the link to the website and click on the “Donate” button.
We would encourage all of you to get the word out to anyone and everyone, including Twitter, Facebook, etc.
Thank you for your time and attention. I hope to see everyone on the field!”
