Frontier League Player, Justin Vasquez, Battling Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma


During this Frontier League season, Schaumburg Boomers outfielder Justin Vasquez noticed that something was wrong. He was fatigued and had a cough that just got worse as the season wore on. After many tests, Justin was diagnosed with Primary Mediastinal Large B-Cell Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma on August 26th and is currently undergoing chemotherapy.

A fundraiser has been set up to help with medical and living expenses and will be held on November 20th in Fort Pierce, FL.

Currently, they are accepting donations such as raffle items, silent auction items, sponsorship, and monetary donations for the event.

A Facebook page has also been set up to support Justin through his fight, Team Justin.

Here is the information that has been posted by Team Justin regarding the event:
