Our team is participating in loving memory of Emily Yish, who passed away in 2014 at the age of 19. Emily was an active, fun-loving person who did her best not to let epilepsy define her life. Despite suffering from seizures, she lived life to the fullest. She played basketball and softball during her middle school and high school years, and became very involved in activities at American International College, where she was a sophomore at the time she passed away. Emily was a huge hockey fan, claiming the New York Islanders and Bridgeport Sound Tigers as "her" teams. She also loved the New York Yankees and UConn women's basketball team.
Emily is greatly missed by her family and friends.
