Pat Summit fought Alzheimer’s disease the same way she approached every game of her coaching career. She battled with a dignity and passion that continues to encourage and inspire the individuals currently suffering from this horrible disease.
As her words so many years ago affected my future, Pat Summitt‘s passing has done the same. She’s reminded me that we are raising money and awareness with BvB Dallas, for a disease that can affect anyone.
Alzheimer’s disease doesn’t discriminate. It can attack the greatest basketball minds. It can attack our grandparents, parents, and loved ones. It could do the same to me one day.
Pat Summit‘s passing is her final battle cry to us – we MUST find a cure for this disease. Thanks for your impact Coach – this summer is for you!
