Instead of one-on-one soccer drills, the Kansas City Current took to one-on-one conversations at Saint Luke's Hospital

Kristen Edmonds, Jaycie Johnson, and Izzy Rodriguez visited the Infusion Center at Saint Luke's Cancer Institute as patients received cancer treatments. This comes ahead of the team's "KC Kicks Cancer" match to raise awareness in the community for the importance of regular cancer screenings and prevention.
