Yusuf Hirji: Thank You for my LIFE!
It elicited great sadness from the Pickering Soccer Club family when we found out that Yusuf Hirji passed away this past weekend, at the age of 19, following a very courageous 4 year battle with the same bone cancer (osteosarcoma) that took Terry Fox. We would like to extend our sincere condolences to all who were close to, and loved Yusuf.
To his loving and supportive family, Yusuf was a brave son who also became a brilliant youth ambassador and poster boy for the Terry Fox Foundation (thus, the poster below). An avid soccer enthusiast, Yusuf always had a positive attitude and a desire to make memories that would last a lifetime.
The many people he touched in his life will surely remember his high-wattage smile.
