The Monterey Tribe Lacrosse Club is honored to rally together in support of one of our most dedicated lacrosse families.
The Lukaskos, a family of five from the Toro Park area of Salinas, are "all in" when it comes to Tribe lacrosse. John and Kori are Salinas natives who fully support all three of their lax-obsessed kids. At 13, Ben is the oldest, and can boast a hat trick last weekend in the u13 win against Santa Cruz. Cami, 10, recently scored 5 goals in the u11 girl’s game against Saratoga. And Charlie, the youngest at just 7, is also a powerhouse, scoring 4 goals in the u9 white's first game of the season.
In February of this year, John, at just 38 years old, was diagnosed with colon cancer. He had successful surgery within weeks of this diagnosis and is now undergoing several months of regular chemotherapy.
The great news is that John is a strong and optimistic fighter who is approaching this battle with exactly the right attitude and tons of love and support from the people around him.
The Monterey Tribe Lacrosse Club would like to express our solidarity with John and the whole Lukasko family by wearing blue colon cancer awareness ribbons on our Tribe uniforms for the duration of the 2015 season. The Tribe board has purchased the ribbons for each player, with proceeds going to research for a cure. In addition, the Tribe will have extra ribbons available for purchase this weekend at the Surf City Tournament and at the U11 girl’s games in Saratoga.
Our TRIBE is honored to come together as an organization in support of this wonderful father, husband, and community member, as well as in support of his amazing family!
Please congratulate our Tribe player, Eric Moseley.
