PLEASE SUPPORT COACH KEN DIXON, HIS WIFE BARB, AND SONS DALTON AND CALVIN
Coach Dixon has served our lacrosse program as a coach at both the youth and high school levels since 2010. He has also been a lacrosse fan and PARENT. Ken started coaching youth lacrosse in 2010 and transitioned to High School Boys in 2014 as the JV Assistant Coach then to JV Head Coach from 2015-2017. In 2018 Ken took on the huge responsibility of our Boys Varsity and JV Head Coach just prior to the season starting when we were left without a varsity coach - fighting through his battle with cancer. And he continued on this past season, serving as Head Coach to our Boys U14 Team. With the support of his family, he has dedicated countless hours to our lacrosse program.

"Friends: This is an update from Ken and Barb regarding Ken's cancer battle. "As many of you know Ken was on an immunotherapy clinical trail at UW Madison. It was a two fold process: first boost his immune system, second weaken the cancer cells so that his body could fight them. The trial was the last option available to fight his particular strain of cancer. Unfortunately it was unsuccessful. All of his cancer cells continue to grow. We met with the doctor on Thursday, July 11th and got the worst news possible. The cancer has destroyed his liver. There is no medical treatment for extensive liver damage. We are now faced with the inevitability of liver failure. It is happening faster than we could have imagined. With the liver unable to filter toxins in his body he will become jaundice and more fatigued. He will eventually go to sleep and not wake up. The doctor told us that this will happen in the next 2 weeks, maybe 3. The only positive thing about all of this is that he will not be in any pain." Please join us as we are quickly putting this event together to celebrate Ken and to support him. There will be music, raffles and whatever we can get together in the coming days to help the Dixon Family as no one can possibly prepare for news like this.
*Please contact John Kolstad or Dawn if you can help out or donate raffle prizes. Many Thanks. (Please contact John or Dawn through the Facebook link above OR email firstname.lastname@example.org and the email will be forwarded to them.)
