This morning, at 1:06 a.m., Shawn Kuykendall passed away after battling thymic cancer for eight months. As Shawn’s friend Mike Foss wrote here, Shawn didn’t see this as a battle lost. He said, “God has a plan and I have to stick to it. If I do that, live or die, I win.”
Please join D.C. United and our MLS family in sending our condolences to the Kuykendall family and all of Shawn’s loved ones. Please continue to keep them all in your thoughts and prayers.
