This Athlete’s One Basketball Game Will Be The Best Day Of Her Life. Find Out Why.
This athlete has so much more at stake with this one basketball game than anyone else in the field.
22 year old Lauren Hill was diagnosed with terminal cancer, and had mere weeks to live. When you are placed in a situation like that, what else can you do but find a reason to live? And for Lauren, that reason was basketball.
Lauren’s final wish was to get to play in her school’s varsity basketball team, and she, and everyone around her, helped her get that wish.
Lauren didn’t get an exhibition game for special treatment. She played in earnest in the starting game for the NCAA, which the commission moves two weeks early to accomodate her. The college also moved the venue to a larger stadium, well 10,000 of Lauren’s supporters could cheer for her.
However, all of this was ultimately just the background to what Lauren herself was to accomplish. Watch her magical moment here.
