Harry Gauss, the well-known general manager of London City Soccer Club, has fought many battles – most of them on the soccer pitch.
But today, he’s fighting the biggest battle of his life. He’s fighting for his life.
Harry recently underwent surgery for a brain tumor which was malignant.
It’s very serious – but he stands a chance.
His best chance is with recent medication that is both exotic and effective. It’s also very expensive and out of reach for most cancer patients. It’s not covered by OHIP or most private plans.
You may have read a series of articles in the Globe and Mail: CANCER – OUR NATIONAL SHAME. It revealed that many cancer patients worry more about the cost of the drugs they need to survive, than the cancer itself.
We intend to remove that concern from Harry Gauss and his family so that he and they, can focus on the battle ahead.
We unabashedly seek your help. Harry has helped many since London City launched in 1973, including scores of young players needing equipment or a chance to play at a higher level. He’s arranged overseas trials. His entire world has been the world of soccer and his family.
Any donation, large or small will be gratefully accepted.
Let’s give Harry a fighting chance. Donations can be made to any T D Canada Trust branch Account 0012-6278045 or dropped off at the CSL office at The Soccer Centre in Vaughan, or can be mailed to:
