RFYFA Families,


Former River Falls Youth Football player, Wildcat senior, and RFYFA volunteer/referee, Tanner Kelm, is facing a major challenge right now. He recently found out he has a version of cancer called Ewing’s Sarcoma.


Unfortunately, a PET scan showed that the cancer has metastasized to several places - right femur, both pelvic bones, spine, collarbones and lung. Tanner has a long road ahead of him; his treatment will be somewhere between 9 and 12 months long. This will include chemo and most likely radiation. Tanner will get chemo every other week, which will require him to stay in the hospital for several days. Needless to say, his parents will likely need to miss work over the next year as he goes through treatments.


Every fall Coach Crail talks to the football players about facing adversity together. They talk about brotherhood, becoming a family, and being a group willing to love and fight for one another. As a community we now have an opportunity to take this lesson out from under the Friday Night Lights and actively support Tanner with the love and support needed during this process.


Below are several ways to make an impact in the lives of Tanner and his family:


-         Order a #56TK vehicle decal for $5 -- donors are matching each $100 sold (email to order)

-         Order a “No One Fights Alone” shirt for $15 by February 8 (go to @RFCatsFootball on Facebook for more information)

-         Donate directly to the GoFundMe page (


All proceeds from the decals, shirts and GoFundMe site will go directly to Tanner and his family.






God bless,


Josh Kluge
