Dominik Rygiel is a talented tournament soccer player who is now fighting the battle of his young life. Until recently, this great, funny 12-year-old was excelling on the field and following his favorite pro soccer team, Juventus, with Cristiano Ronaldo. Back in July, Dominik was diagnosed with a brain tumor.... an aggressive form of cancer. The news was devastating to his family and to the soccer community in Arizona where he plays for the Scottsdale Sandsharks.

Now, a GoFundMe campaign has been set up to help with the challenging times ahead, as Dominik completes radiation and heads into clinical trials which are not often covered by insurance. His family and friends are counting on the power of social media to spread the word about this urgent need. Dominik...keep up the fight and know that all of us here at RTM are rooting for you!
