Her team showed up early in pink to give her a surprise. Her friends describe her as a fighter, someone who can overcome anything.

“Honestly, I was a little numb at first, but also relieved, because she is such a strong person. If anybody can battle for this and fight for this it’s Bri,” said Rebecca Baker, friend of Curtis.

Tyler Pershka is on the opposing team. he wants to stay positive for Curtis.

“She’s always organizing fundraisers, and helping out younger children, and being kind of a role model for the younger girls coming up. I don’t see any reason why she can’t beat this,” said Perschka, player on opposing team.

Mark Conser is one of her best friends. He wants Curtis to know she is not alone.

“She’s probably the most caring, compassionate person you’ll ever meet; always putting people ahead of herself,” said Conser, Coach.

“Just really emotional; the slow pitched community is really great at supporting. I have really great friends and a support system,” said Curtis.

Curtis is currently has her fundraiser Brianna’s Fight Towards Cancer on Facebook. Her fundraiser has raised $5,000 so far.
