On Saturday, May 23rd, 2015 in the last inning of her travel softball tournament, Cal Thunder 14u first baseman Dana Housley suffered a brain aneurysm during the middle of her at bat. She has been placed on life support because she is unable to breathe on her own, nor is there any brain activity. The softball community throughout the country has prayed for her, thanks to social media. However, we only have until Monday morning for God to answer our prayers before she is going to be taken off of life support.

Dana is young just finished her Freshman year at Etiwanda HS. She is so beautiful and such a fighter. Her family needs your prayers and donations. Please find it in your heart to assistin ANY way possible. Cal Thunder thanks everyone who has prayed, tweeted or shared in this experience by representing Dana's love and passion for her sport. We are truly all family!

On Friday, June 5th, 2015, our Perfect Angel Dana Grace Housley was laid to rest. Dana is smiling upon us now with her big beautuful smile. Her Celebration of Life Memorial Service was just as beautiful as her. The service was attended by many which was representative of the outpouring of support she was given. Dana's gift of genuine love and compassion that she gave each person she touched and even those she didn't during her short 15 years will live on through all of us! Thank you everyone for your comments, gifts, flowers and donations.

From Larry and Julieta:

Tonight our beautiful Dana chose to go with the Lord. We don't yet understand his plan for her, but she will make a perfect angel.

The tremendous national and international outpouring of love and support for our daughter and our family during this devastating ordeal is appreciated beyond words.

Although the journey ahead for our family will be unimaginably painful, we now understand we have a family of thousands in the softball community to help us through. We will feel pain and emptiness at the loss of our baby girl, but we won't have to feel it alone.
As we begin the healing process, we thank you all. We will not forget your love, prayers, and support, nor will we ever forget the wonderful memories of our little girl, Dana Housley #21.

Our sincerest prayers and thoughts are going out to the Housley family. We continue to pray for Dana. It's humbling to see our softball community step up the way they have. Today we are not representing a Firecrackers, Batbusters or Athletics jersey. Today we are all rooting for Cal Thunder #21 #prayfordana #calthunder

From Coatesville Pennsylvania, the young ladys of Lady Steel 14 Travel Softball, your sisters in softball, lift you up in prayer, and pray for an amazing and miraculous recovery. God works in amazing ways, and sometimes we dont always agree with his ways, but there is a purpose for all of IT. As a mother, I want you to make a speedy recovery, as a softball mom, I want you to fight like heck and get back on the field, and as a CHRISTIAN, I want you to just know that GOD has you in his arms, and whatever HIS will be in all this, you will continue to live on and be a star to not just your parents, your family, and your team, but too ALL OF US IN YOUR SOFTBALL FAMILY! God Bless you, and your parents!

My prayers for this beautiful young lady. Although I don't know her , I do know what her family is going thru. My daughter had no brain activity and passed away 7 yrs ago. But she lives on in others as I donated her organs to help others. God please place your hands over this family during this most difficult time.

Our hearts have been broken, we have lost a sister, a friend, a daughter. It's hard to understand why such a young life has been lost, we can only imagine the pain that her family and friends are going through. The reason her loss is so powerful is because everyone sees their daughter in Dana. A young beautiful lady with her whole life in front of her. Hug your children a little tighter today, take joy in what they do. Softball parents, remember that we play a game, it needs to be fun for them, it needs to be fun for you, win or a loss, it doesn't matter. Enjoy the time you spend with them. Dana is now with her creator, she fought the good fight, she finished the race, she kept the faith. May her passing serve a purpose, let it be a reminder for all of us to be better people, better parents. May the Almighty comfort the Housley family and her friends. ‪#‎playwithhonor‬ ‪#‎playfordana‬ ‪#‎prayfordana‬

The softball community is a very close, family oriented community. This hits home in so many ways for so many of us. It has been great to see our softball community step up in the time of need for this young lady and her family. For the past few days, it has not mattered who you play for, what number you wear, who you support, we are all playing for and supporting Cal Thunder and all wearing #21. #prayfordana
