|Lauren Hill, the Mount St. Joseph basketball player diagnosis with cancer passed away.|
The basketball icon of Mount St. Joseph University Lauren Hill passed away yesterday. Many people are hoping that her legacy will help others achieve goals. She wanted to live her life doing something she told pride in doing.
She came to fame when she told the public she was diagnosis with terminal brain cancer.
She had Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma after she turned 18 in October 2013.
"To put my foot down on the floor and hear the roar of the crowd -- I just love it so much. I love basketball," Hill said after the game, where over 10,000 people attended, according to the Associated Press.
The away game was originally scheduled for later in the month, but the NCAA allowed it to be moved up due to Hill's condition. It was also held at Xavier University to accommodate the large, sold out crowd.
She had an opportunity to play a few basketball games and even graduated with high honors.
We here at Journal de Reyna send our condolences to the family of Lauren Hill.
