Each year, college basketball coaches from across the nation flock to Spokane in support of an annual fundraiser known as “Coaches vs. Cancer.”

Sponsored by Gonzaga head coach Mark Few and his wife, Marcy, the event has raised millions of dollars for cancer research while serving as a unique podium for inspirational stories that provide hope in the ongoing battle against the disease.
This year, attendees were privileged to hear the extraordinary experience of a cancer survivor from Provo, UT. who arrived in the Inland Northwest with a narrative that added special meaning to last weekend’s festivities.
