Jordan Foote, the former Holy Trinity high school football star received a timely donation from Racers Track Club today when representatives from the Glen Mills run organization handed over a cheque valued at $200,000 to help with the purchase of a prosthetic leg.
Foote was earlier this year diagnosed with cancer in his knee and had to undergo an operation to remove his right leg, five inches above the knee, as the cancer was too far gone to be removed by surgery.
Life after surgery now begins for the 18 year old, who will need to come up with over $1.7M to secure a prosthetic leg.
His coach Devon Anderson revealed as much to Yardie Sports, “The hunt is on to secure the funding to get a prostates for him after his leg is healed. It is a huge sum of money but we have to find a way to raise it. Right now we are nowhere near the target so we are asking for donations from anyone who can afford it at this time.”
Foote was a promising young player who helped his school reach the finals of the FLOW Super Cup in 2014, in what was a fairytale season for Holy Trinity.
