Lauren Hill has a rare incurable cancer in her brain. She’s also a Mount St. Joseph college freshman and played in her first game on Sunday. Lauren not only scored the first basket, but she also made the winning shot. Lauren went to her left in the paint, to take a smooth left handed layup. “Lauren Hill scored four points on Sunday, and her Division III team, Mount St. Joseph, beat Hiram College, 66-55.” The game took place in Ohio, a day after Brittany Maynard, the 29-year-old who said she had terminal brain cancer, took medication to end her life under Oregon’s “Death with Dignity Act,”
After hearing her story basketball superstar Lebron James sent his condolences and said:
“You are simply and truly “AMAZING” Lauren Hill!!! Thank you for inspiring me and I’ll try my best to match you! Congrats on your game. Also be looking out for a package from I to You! You’re Awesome!!!
Lauren has taught me to appreciate each day of my life. And I’ve learned to complain less and do more while I’m still healthy, and still and the time.
