CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) — Austen Everett, who was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma while she was a member of Miami's women's soccer team in 2008, has died, her family said. She was 25.
Everett died Tuesday at a hospice facility in Colorado. She was on the Hurricanes' roster as a goalkeeper from 2007 through 2009.
Within a year of her diagnosis, she was back on the Hurricanes' practice field and founded the Austen Everett Foundation, which would have athletes spend time with children with cancer and other terminal diseases. Her family intends to keep the foundation going.
Miami plans a candlelight vigil in the coming days, along with other tributes.
A memorial service is scheduled for Thursday at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Seattle, Everett's hometown.
