Making a Difference

Last fall, All-Star lacrosse player Evan Brady was diagnosed with osteogenic sarcoma. When friends and teammates heard about Evan's condition, they came together to establish the Friends for Evan Brady, a group committed to providing support to those in their community who deal with hardships as a result of unexpected illness. To raise funds, they established the Friends of Evan Brady Lacrosse Tournament, which has now become an annual event.

During his battle with cancer, Evan faced a tough, long year filled with intense chemotherapy and major surgery. Through the generosity of friends and strangers alike, the Friends of Evan Brady was able to help provide support to the Brady family during this difficult time.

As a result of its successful fund raising, the Friends of Evan Brady also made a donation to the Sarcoma Research Fund to support research at Pennsylvania Hospital's Joan Karnell Cancer Center. We are committed to helping to uncover new and better treatments for sarcoma and thank the Friends of Evan Brady for its support. For more information about this organization visit
