A few of you may know that around 7 years ago, a long time Rutgers fan, also a Division II or Division III player, died of a childhood cancer. It wasn't the same specific tumor, but likewise developed late (she was already in college) and was a kind that is 100% fatal. Unlike Lauren's type of cancer, aggressive treatment gave the young lady more time but we are only talking a couple of years. Her family was very involved with Alex's Lemonade Stand as a charity for children's cancer.
One of the sad truths that was pointed out at that time was the relatively small portion of cancer research funding goes toward the group of pediatric cancers. So especially cool that this game was able to inspire folks to consider donating.
