Jace, is a young man with true character and an extreme work ethic. He has a passion for competition in both the sport of football and wrestling. His hard work has led him into the Washington High School State finals 3 times in wrestling, and has helped him secure a full scholarship to the University of Idaho to play football.
Over the past week he and his family have recieved some shocking news that he has a large cancerous tumor in his hip. This has hit our community with a tragic blow and has left his family with a very large obligation in medical bills. He will require several months of chemo and several months of radiation on top of other medical procedures that will be required to fight this battle.
For those of you that have had the priveledge of meeting this terrific young man, he is a class act. He is an outstanding student, athlete, and friend to many. I just ask that you open your hearts and find a way to contribute to this fight. If you know Jace, you know he will do his part, now we just need to do ours.
-Coach Bundy & the West Valley Family
