On August 6th, after a long battle with cancer our teammates' mother, Debi Fase Sheppard, was welcomed into heaven. Debi was diagnosed in 2012 with stage four colon cancer. She fought a hard battle for five years and surpassed the life expectancy given. Debi was a strong, family-oriented woman who is survived by her husband, Shawn, six children and four grandchildren. On behalf of the Metro State Women's Soccer program we would like to encourage people to donate to the Sheppard family to help pay for funeral expenses and costs. Please keep the Sheppard family in your thoughts and prayers as they mourn in the loss of their loved one. Thank you to anyone who is able to donate or send a prayer.
