INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – A big donation is being made for cancer research on behalf of the Indiana girl playing college basketball while battling brain cancer.
The V-Foundation for Cancer Research is donating $100,000 to pediatric brain cancer research on behalf of Lauren Hill.
Hill has inoperable brain cancer, but has played in two college basketball games this season for Mount Saint Joseph University in Cincinnati.
“Lauren’s spirit and bravery are an inspiration to us all. In honor of her courage, The V Foundation is going to make a special grant of $100,000 to fund cutting edge brain cancer research,” said Susan Braun, CEO of The V Foundation for Cancer Research. “We have also established a page on our website, jimmyv.org/lauren, for those who wish to contribute to increase the amount of the grant. We send our heartfelt support to Lauren and her family and pledge to do everything in our power to put an end to cancer.”
