WEST SUNBURY, Pa. – The Moniteau softball team will be honoring and supporting one of their teammates and others who have fought or are fighting childhood cancer and tumors by wearing gray hair bows on game days during May, which is Brain Tumor Awareness Month.

It is a cause that hits home for the Lady Warriors.

Sophomore softball player Taylor Voloch was diagnosed with Pilocytic astrocytoma, a slow-growing tumor in the central nervous system, which is made up of the brain and spinal cord, when she was eight years old.

Voloch has undergone two surgeries and a year’s worth of chemotherapy, according to a post on the Moniteau Softball Association Facebook page, and has since taken life by the horns and has never looked back.

“We are amazed by Taylor’s strength and determination to always give 100 percent to everything that she puts her mind to,” the post said. “Taylor enjoys hanging out with friends and family, spending time outdoors, and playing softball in her spare time. Her favorite subjects at school are chemistry and math and she hopes to attend college to become a biochemist after high school. The Moniteau Girls Softball team is proud to honor and support their teammate, her family, and all those affected by childhood cancer and tumors. We are proud of Taylor and all that she has overcome and continues to do.”

Here is the post, that was shared on D9and10Sports’s Facebook page Sunday.
