Eudom Moncada passed away on February 6, 2015
The Red Army in the United States has lost one of its bravest fighters.
Eudom Moncada, who was diagnosed with Desmoplastic Small Round Cell Tumor in 2011, passed away on February 6, 2015 at the age of 24.
DSRCT, a rare and aggressive form of cancer, required Eudom to undergo daily chemotherapy in addition to surgery and radiation treatments. However, despite the effects of the treatment on his body, he joined a church league and played soccer a few times a week for both emotional and physical therapy.
Last year, Eudom was named the Spring 2014 honoree by The Craig Willinger Fund. Through their efforts, and in conjunction with both Manchester United and One United USA, Eudom was treated to a match-day VIP experience at Old Trafford against Hull City on May 6, 2014. This included a meet-and-greet with Javier “Chicharito” Hernandez.
On behalf of all Reds across these United States, we offer our condolences to Eudom’s family and friends.
The Craig Willinger Fund, formed in 2009, seeks to improve the lives of children and young adults stricken with cancer by providing once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to experience world-class soccer – both domestically and abroad.
