Proceeds will go directly to Jillion Potter to support her fight against cancer.
Jillion Potter is an international 15’s and 7’s USA women’s rugby player, and Rio Olympian. She received her first 15’s cap in 2007 and her first 7’s cap in 2012. Most recently, she played in the 2014 World Cup in France with the USA 15’s team and in the 2013 World Cup in Moscow with the USA 7’s team.
Since 2012, she has been living and training as a resident athlete at the Olympic Training Center (OTC) in Chula Vista, CA, competing in the IRB 7’s World Series and preparing for Rio 2016. She has achieved all of these accomplishments, but not without hardship.
Jillion sustained a neck break just prior to the 2010 15’s World Cup and returned to international rugby just over a year later. In 2014, Jillion found out she had another battle to win – this time against synovial sarcoma, a rare form of cancer. Just one year later she was back at the OTC and debuted on the first USA Women’s Rugby Team to compete in the Olympics. 3 months after Rio, Jillion was re-diagnosed with synovial sarcoma and must undergo treatment at MD. Anderson in Houston, Tx because of the necessity for clinical trial.
