Welcome to the Antonia Lightning 8U Website!

THE ANTONIA LIGHTNING 8U TEAM HAS DISBANDED, BUT WE HAVE DECIDED TO KEEP THE SITE OPEN FOR INFORMATION AND TO SUPPORT JAKE GUIDICY AND HIS FIGHT WITH PEDIATRIC BONE CANCER


IN MEMORY OF JAKE GUIDICY   November 21, 1995 - July 6, 2008

Jake Guidicy, a student at Seckman Elementary School was diagnosed with Pediatric Bone Cancer in August 2006. Jake is the brother of Matt Guidicy, a Seckman HS classmate of former Antonia Lightning Coach Josh.

After Jake finished his treatments in October 2007, it was found that there was more cancer present not only in his left arm, but in his lungs as well.   Jake continued to have more treatments and surgeries to fight the cancer.

 It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I must announce that Jacob "Jake" Guidicy passed away on July 6, 2008 after a valiant battle with Pediatric Bone Cancer.   Jake was 12 years old. Here is a quote from the JCYA website that describes Jake best,

"For the past year and a half Jake courageously battled cancer while never thinking of himself, but rather smiling and making jokes to relieve the pressure from his family. He loved supporting his friends that he had met in the hospital and helping raise money for others in need. His courage and positive attitude has truly touched the lives of everyone he knew."

The Visitation for Jake will be at the Hoffmeister South County Chapel, 1515 Lemay Ferry Road on Wednesday, July 9, 2008 from 3-9 pm.  The funeral service will be at 10 am, Thursday, July 10, 2008.  Jake will be interred at Resurrection Cemetery in Affton.

The Guidicy family asks that in lieu of flowers memorials appreciated to the Jacob Guidicy Trust at the Eagle Bank in Arnold, MO 63010.

Please keep the Guidicy family in your thoughts and prayers.  The former Antonia Lightning 8U players, families and coaches offer their sincere condolences to Jake's family and friends.
