Hope For World Class Local Area Athlete

We should be proud to have Hope Solo living in the area, she is a two time Olympic gold medal winner.  She is a lifelong Washington state resident, growing up in Richland, attending the University of Washington and playing for the hometown Seattle Reign Women's Soccer team.  She is considered one of the best goalkeepers in the game.  She was also a contestant on Dancing With The Stars, one of the few if any contestants to clearly identify with the Seattle area.
With a very easy to remember name and being a top female athlete comes challenges, incidents that would maybe be unnoticed by news media become big stories when a well known figure is involved.  We are saddened to hear of Hope's current troubles and hope (no pun intended) that she can get proper support to give this story a happy ending.
