Nine years ago today I was awarded the Dick Wright Inspirational Award by the Spokane Sports Comission at their annual banquet! This is the recognition that started my journey of inspiring young athletes!! Who would have known that nine years later it would lead me to the upcoming Women’s Final Four in New Orleans! It has been an absolute honor to share my story of overcoming cancer with countless basketball, baseball, football, volleyball, soccer, hockey, and golf teams! I have cherished each and every opportunity!!
