An Honorary Gaucho

In 2013, players from the UCSB Men’s Soccer team began to visit 13-year-old Omar Ibarra who was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. After many treatments, he is now a survivor. In February 2015, UCSB Men’s Soccer teamed up with Cancer Fit to help improve the quality of life for cancer survivors. Join us in recognizing Omar as an Honorary Gaucho.

Please join us in November for “An Honorary Gaucho Part III”.
