The Vanderbilt women's soccer team joined forces with Friends of Jaclyn and adopted Krystal Adams, as a friend and teammate for the season. The following video tells their story.
Friends of Jaclyn is non-profit organization with the mission of improving the quality of life for children and families who are fighting pediatric brain tumors. The following is an excerpt from the Friends of Jaclyn mission.
- "How do we do this? FoJ pairs up children and their families battling pediatric brain tumors with college and high school sports teams. The teams give these children love, support and friendship as they fight this devastating disease. We celebrate each day by creating lasting relationships between student-athletes, the child, and their families. This greatly improves the quality of life for children with brain tumors, as well as those who support them."
