Former BSU soccer player loses battle with cancer

Boise, ID (KBOI) - Former Boise State soccer player Amy Dunn passed away March 31 after a second bout with stage IV melanoma. She was 29 years old.

Friends of Dunn confirmed her passing to KBOI 2 Saturday night, and Boise State announced Tuesday that a public memorial will be held Monday, April 9 at the Simplot Ballroom in the Boise State Student Union Building. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. with the service scheduled from 6 to 7 p.m. Parking will be free in the University's Lincoln Garage.

Dunn was a four-year letterwinner for Boise State, playing between 1999 and 2003.

"Our thoughts and prayers go out to Amy's family during this hard time," Boise State Soccer Head Coach Steve Lucas said in a press release. "She meant a lot to our program and she made an impact on everybody, including our current players. That's a huge thing for an alum to do and we are going to do our best to honor her."

This August, the soccer team raised over $12,000 during an exhibition game fundraiser to help offset some of Dunn's healthcare costs. A link to that story can be found in the 'related content' section of this page.
