Former Denver Soccer Star’s Mother Loses Cancer Battle

Kortne Ford tweeted a message early this morning “RIP Momma”. After a lengthy battle with cancer, his mother, Lauri Ford, passed away Sunday.  This follows the mid-November announcement when the Ford family made a decision to discontinue cancer treatment. Ford called it. “The hardest day of my life.”

Sunday will no doubt top that awful day.

Lauri Ford’s GoFundMe page is still open if you would like to contribute to the Ford family. Ford will always be known for his skill on the pitch but his years-long devotion to his mother was truly extraordinary.
