Women's Basketball Teams Donate to Coaches vs. Cancer

Jan. 11, 2006

Prior to its Jan. 10 home game against Millikin, the Illinois Wesleyan women's basketball team made a contribution to the Coaches vs. Cancer Fund in the name of IWU Associate Professor of Physics Linda French, a cancer survivor.

Money was raised among the team members and coaches and presented to Millikin coach Lori Kerans, a cancer survivor who is very active in the Coaches vs. Cancer program.

Coaches vs. Cancer is a community-funded program designed to reduce youth risk of cancer by focusing on research, prevention, education, and patient services of the American Cancer Society.
