Patient Referral

A Sporting KC Fan's Final Wish


Lee Promsenmuong

Crossroads Hospice patient Thephayonh “Lee” Promsenmuong has been a Sporting Kansas City fan since the team started in 1996. He loved attending their matches and frequently joined the KC Cauldron pregame tailgates.

When we approached him about what his perfect day would be, he told us it would be attending one more Sporting KC match. Our Gift of a Day team went into action and reached out to the soccer team to make it happen.

In February, soccer star Graham Zusi made a surprise visit to deliver a personalized jersey at tickets to Sporting KC's home opener against the Vancouver Whitecaps.

On Game Day, the VIP treatment continued.

Lee's care team arranged for him to be taken to match by limo.


Once there, he was able to join the KC Cauldron pregame festivities and spend time with old friends.

 Finally, he was escorted onto the field to perform the ceremonial coin toss.

Sporting KC won the coin toss and won the match!

Lee was even able to exchange a few words with Graham Zusi before the match.

It was truly a perfect day for a special fan.
