Cuauhtemoc Flores, most commonly known as Temoc or "T", is your average 23 year old striving to achieve his goals.
Growing up playing soccer at the highest level, Temoc reached the provincial soccer team of Ontario. However, things quickly took a dark turn. At the young age of 12, Temoc was diagnosed with brain cancer, leaving him fighting for his life. After a year-long fight at the Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids), Temoc was finally deemed cancer-free, marking his greatest achievement to date. The cancer took more than it needed, leaving Temoc with a physical disability - but that didn’t stop him from striving for his goals. Today, he is now a member of the Canadian Para Soccer Team.
Temoc brings over 15+ years of competitive playing experience and seven years of coaching experience, five of which specifically in the accessibility sector. In 2015, he joined the All Abilities program in Pickering, Ontario, a program geared towards children and youth with disabilities. He fell in love working among this population and giving back through coaching, which has given him some of the most impactful experiences of his life.
On his off days Temoc enjoys reading, training, spending time with his friends and family, and volunteering with the Canadian Cancer Society. He has been invited to several schools and programs to share his story of battling cancer, in hopes of providing a source of inspiration for current and future generations.
